Mardi Gras Louisiana Coast

Mardi Gras on Louisiana's Northshore

There are nearly two dozen parades and events for Mardi Gras on Louisiana's Northshore, but two of the more interesting events include  Krewe of Tchefuncte and  Mystic Krewe of Mardi Paws. Krewe of Tchefuncte is a boats-only parade that cruises the Tchefuncte River in Madisonville. Held on Sunday, February 23 this year, the theme is “Celebrating Louisiana’s Legends.”  The parade is open to all.

On Sunday, March 9, Mystic Krewe of Mardi Paws celebrates its 20th year with the theme “Live from the Red CarPET.” Dogs sashay in costume along Mandeville’s lakefront in a fun parade that supports three of the Northshore’s non-profits aimed at helping kids and dogs alike.
