After all of the speculation of things going wrong with this year's event, Gator Drag went off just as planned. This time around marked the third different location since the show's beginnings in Louisiana. The venue changes made it difficult for some to keep up on the event, while others became skeptical that it could keep going strong.
Luckily for promoter Brandon Leblanc and the Relay for Life breast cancer foundation, Gator Drag turned out to be a success once again. Leblanc donates all money made after expenses to Relay for Life. Someone close to him was diagnosed with the disease, and ever since then he has been dedicated to putting on the best show possible and to helping those in need. Gator Drag continues to exceed expectations.
