DJ Joe Gauthreaux to Headline Glitter Run After-Party

A dance floor with special lighting will showcase glimmering, glittery bodies as Joe Gauthreaux, one of the nation’s most celebrated D.J.s, provides a totally immersive musical experience after the Aug. 20 Glitter Run.

The very unique, outdoor party in the heart of Hollywood, is free with registration to The Glitter Run.

Gauthreaux has a well-deserved reputation for delivering music that includes big anthems, house rhythms, progressive beats and even tribal drums. His musical journeys have made him a staple at major clubs across North America, Brazil and Asia for the past 15 years.

Admission to the party includes a complimentary cocktail designed by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and access to some of L.A’s most popular food trucks, including Richeeze, Foodism, Bby’s Badass Burgers and Recess.

There will also be photo booth opportunities made all the more fun with a bonus tube of glitter after the 5K run/walk, a finisher’s medal, a Glitter Run towel and a Glitter Run T-shirt or tank top. Popular DJ Woody Woodbeck, spinning before Gauthreaux, will get the party started.

And that’s not the only party connected to The Glitter Run.

The Macy’s Beverly Center Men’s Store is holding a free kickoff party on Thursday, August 17. There will be live entertainment, food, and two free drinks designed by Tito’s Handmade Vodka. RSVP at macysglitterrun.eventbrite.com.

No fundraising is required to participate in The Glitter Run and Vanguard readers can save $20 on the registration fee by using the promo code “MakeAmericaGlitterAgain.” Children 12 and under run/walk for free.

During the 5K run/walk past many of Hollywood’s iconic landmarks, participants will be sprinkled with different colors of non-toxic, washable glitter as they pass through seven glitter stations.

The Glitter Run is created and produced by MZA Events.
