HAMMOND, La — On Friday, February 17, the TRACC Coalition, along with Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa, Volunteers of America, Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco Free Living, Southeastern PEEPS, the KEYS Alliance Youth Leadership Group, Florida Parishes Human Services Authority - Prevention Services, and S.A.F.E. (formerly Southeast Spouse Abuse) hosted the "In the Zone" event before the Krewe of Omega Parade in Hammond.
There was no smoking, no drinking, and no drugs allowed in the zone, but there was an inflatable slide, games and prizes for the kids, popcorn and treats, and live music.
More than 600 individuals came from across the parish, and even some from out of state, to enjoy Hammond's own Krewe of Omega Parade.
