On Memorial Day 2017, a group of drag queens from New Orleans organize a race called Mascara Race. After singing the National Anthem, the contestants start the race by eating a full bowl of food. After that, they all run around the block, stopping in 6 bars. In each one of them they have to drink a cocktail and add part of their drag outfit and make up, with the help of their pit crew.
