LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
Despite the cooler weather, a good crowd made it out to the Coushatta Farmer's Market. More than two dozen vendors were set up in downtown Elton selling everything from arts and crafts to pet bunnies.
The Coushatta Farmer's Market is the first Saturday of every month until June. Organizers said the market and events that it promotes is the tribe's way of giving back.
"That's the Coushatta Tribe's commitment and investment in our hometown of Elton. We try to plan family events that will get everybody out here and involved," said David Sickey, Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana.
This weekend's event attracted a lot of runners and walkers. More than 100 people participated in the Coushatta 5K/10K run.
"The last time I walked a 5K, I finished in 45 minutes. It will probably take me a little longer because I'm older. But I come out to inspire others and let them know they can do it too," said Eugene Kinkelaar.
"It is very cold, but I'm ready. I should have probably wore some more pants but it's okay I love running in the cold. It's great," said Katie Champagne.
"I love to run. I've always wanted to be a runner as a young teenage and I never did it until after I was married and had kids and so now they run with me. All of my daughters run and we are all here today," said Trish Langley.
