Lebeau Mardi Gras Festival

Its Saturday and Mardi Gras time in Louisiana. This years post is all about Mardi Gras in Cajun Country ! So come Enjoy the Party !!

Mardi Gras in Lebeau is a lot like other rural celebrations across St. Landry Parish with a few distinguishing qualities. At 1pm, the parade starts marching down Hwy 10 with a procession of cars, trucks, and floats. You know you’re in Lebeau when horses, 4-wheelers, side by sides, golf carts, and more festive vehicles and equines pass by as well. What sets Lebeau’s Mardi Gras run apart from other courirs is the inclusion of a greased pig chase with their chicken run. It’s not a real Lebeau celebration without zydeco musicians to dance along to.

In the past, Step Rideau, Lebeau native and recognized master of the accordion, has taken to the stage. This year, Mike Broussard will be performing from 3pm-7pm.

Line up begins at 11 a.m. and the parade starts at 1 p.m.

There will also be a chicken run and pig catch complete with trophies awarded to the winners.

There will be live bands and food from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Church located at 103 Lebeau Church Rd, Washington, LA 70589.

Laissez les bons temps rouler
! Let the Good Times Roll in Cajun Country !!
