Friday Plan-

Today is Friday Feb 24th- and my family is planning for the Parade in Lafayette on Saturday. 

Because of work schedule Saturday parades work for us. Even though school is out for a week and its a legal holiday -not all things stop for Mardi Gras.

Parade going has a lot of tradition for people –

Which Parade? (there many ) Most people have a favorite  .

Where to Stand ? Route, next to food or bathrooms , beginning or end of parade

What to bring / Wear ? The weather can be a deciding factor on clothes. Some people bring  chairs to sit, ladder to catch beads and cooler.

With a family and getting older we do the easy and safe way. We go to Saturday Parade- couple of stop along the way for some treats and off to the parade at a secure location.
