On Saturday morning, the streets of Shreveport came alive with color.

The first-ever Run or Dye 5K event was held.

More than 6,000 people filled Clyde Fant Parkway in downtown Shreveport.

The event started at 7am and lasted until about 1pm.

It may have been early, but everyone was ready to get their color on.

Loud music, prizes, and of course powder were passed out to the racers.

"It's all about spreading love and living life in full color," said Event Director Colin Larsen. "People should have a good time, because it's not just about the run and being in shape. People always have a purpose for running 5K's, ours is about being happy and just living life."

More than 6,000 pounds of powder was used.

Organizers travel the United States with this event.

Next weekend they'll be in Detroit and Houston.

If you missed the run, don't worry because Larsen says they'll be back.
