Mardi Gras Parades in
St. Tammany Parish
Around the world, Louisiana is known for Mardi Gras and the parades and parties that accompany the occasion. The Carnival momentum kicks off on January 6, (known as the Twelfth Night) and continues through the Sunday after Mardi Gras Day. The parades on Louisiana's Northshore are "Gee-rated" with an emphasis on family-fun entertainment. Parade-goers participate in the celebration by dressing in costume to match the Krewe's chosen theme (or creating one of their own.) It's Mardi Gras! Catch the spirit and you'll score some throws at parades in Slidell, Covington, Mandeville and other local communities on the Louisiana Northshore, St. Tammany Parish.
