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.
