Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras

"Throw Me Something, Mister!" This is a phrase people say as they get caught up in the Mardi Gras spirit. And when it comes to Mardi Gras spirit, the people and parades in Louisiana's Cajun Bayou are tough to beat.

From the Krewe of Ambrosia parade in Thibodaux at the beginning of Carnival season, all the way to the Krewe of Neptune parade in Golden Meadow on Fat Tuesday, you will experience Mardi Gras in a way that only Cajuns can provide.

Enjoy 16 family-friendly parades with a Cajun flare. You’ll always be able to find a great spot to view the beautiful floats and of course, catch more beads, cups and trinkets than you can carry.

Cajuns love to celebrate life, and there is no better time to do that than during Mardi Gras. The smell of barbeque and crawfish boils fill the air as locals and visitors alike gather along the parade routes. And a Cajun never meets a stranger, so don’t be surprised when you are invited to share a plate, a dance or just to pass a good time.
