People of Lake Arthur and surrounding communities! Find your favorite costume, your fanciest “throws” and get your party face on because the annual Lake Arthur Mardi Gras Parade and Run is right around the corner and rolling your way!
Yes, the whole fantastic celebration is set for Saturday, February 14th, 2009 in and around the Town of Lake Arthur. The Lake Arthur Mardi Gras Parade and Run is a wholesome, family-oriented affair geared to area children to participate in and enjoy.
That doesn’t mean that adults won’t have a whole lot of fun “passing a great time” and enjoying tasty Cajun food, drink, music and other forms of entertainment. It just means that the unfortunate vulgarities that frequent some of the larger cities will not be tolerated in Lake Arthur.
The annual Mardi Gras Run begins at 9:00 a.m. at the Lake Arthur Park, and riders will canvas the community in search of tasty items that can be cooked for a hot Mardi Gras feast.
At 2:00 p.m., the 2009 Mardi Gras Parade will be set to run on Arthur Street and Arthur Avenue, as hundreds of riders will take their seats on scores of floats down the parade route.
The whole affair promises to be a lot of fun, so come on out and enjoy!
