Mardi Gras Parades in Louisiana
“Throw me something, Mister!” is a phrase you'll hear often as people get caught up in the Mardi Gras spirit on the bayou. The folks of Lafourche love to celebrate life and there is no better way to do that than during Mardi Gras. Enjoy the sites of more than 15 family-friendly parades with a New Orleans flair and beautiful floats stunningly adorned with kings, queens, and costumed riders. You'll catch more beads, cups, and trinkets than you can carry.
Enjoy a delicious famous King Cake, a tradition that dates back centuries. Some of the best ones in the world are made in the bakeries of Lafourche Parish.
Mardi Gras 2017 is Tuesday, February 28. Parade dates and listings coming soon!
For the last five years, Mardi Gras in the Bayou Lafourche area has been named a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event!
