Krewe of Mask Mardi Gras Parade in Downtown LaGrange
February 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm EST
The Krewe of Mask will ‘step off’ in its third annual parade on February 23 at 7pm. This family-friendly event features floats, throws, beads, doubloons, candy, music and fun.
Come out and catch some throws! Bring a bag – your pockets might not be enough.
The route starts at Sweetland’s parking lot and goes to Ridley, turns right on Main, to W. Broome, to Bull St, to Church and back to Sweetland. This route should give people the chance to see it twice if they like, and catch twice as many beads, cups and doubloons. People of all ages are encouraged to mask and/or costume for this event. Mardi Gras parades are unique in that there’s not only masking, but crowd participation. One sees someone on a float, maybe gets their attention, then catches thrown trinkets. Kids especially love all the plastic ‘loot’ they get because in a way – they’ve earned it, gathered it, and it’s theirs.
There will be an official reviewing stand across from City Hall on Ridley Street. “Best Costume from the Crowd” will be judged there. People wanting to see the parade announced, or to hear our Lord Mayor welcoming the King and Queen back to LaGrange, should gather there.
