Mardi Paws
A parade for all

Mandeville Mardi Gras Parades 2020

Mandeville is the central spot in St. Tammany Parish, just moments off the Causeway (the 24-mile long bridge connecting the New Orleans area and Louisiana's Northshore). Family-friendly parades are just a hop, skip and a jump away from the crowds of the city. Known for handcrafted outfits and floats, you're sure to fill your arms with all the throws and beads you want to carry at this memorable parade. Eve is the only night parade in Mandeville this year, as the Original Krewe of Orpheus does will roll again in 2021. And, to close the season in Mandeville, the inaugural mutt strut "Krewe du Pooch" takes to the lakefront on the Saturday following Mardi Gras.

Starts near the junction of Hwy 22 and US 190 and follows W. Causeway Approach above Monroe St., crosses 190 and ends on E. Causeway Appr.
