Krewe members will create human-powered floats, costumes and collectible throws that pay tribute to the countless weekend celebrations with tongue-in-cheek references to classic Louisiana festivals like the Rayne Frog Festival, the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival, the Giant Omelette Celebration and so much more.
Spectators will be able to get up close and personal with our marchers as there will be limited barricades along the route! (Barricades placed for later Mardi Gras parades can be crossed!)
Make your plans to join us in downtown Lafayette for the most exciting new Mardi Gras tradition in Acadiana as we take to the streets of the heart of the Hub City to celebrate the best holiday of the year!
*** The parade is 100% free to attend! Children and adults are encouraged to wear costumes and bring lights and noisemakers to the parade route! ***
You can sign up to be a member of Krewe de Canailles at krewedecanailles.com starting today! Deadline to register is Jan 15th.
