Rolling on the River: 2022 local Mardi Gras parade schedule announced
Published 12:03 am Saturday, February 12, 2022
LAPLACE — In the River Parishes, Laissez les bons temps rouler is celebrated River Style – which is all about the people celebrating the communities that have been around as long as the Carnival tradition. Along the River, residents celebrate Mardi Gras the same way they celebrate life – loud, joyful and full of flavor.
The floats are filled with families throwing more beads than you can catch, while every house along the parade route is spilling over with family members enjoying jambalaya or gumbo filled with locally made andouille, our German sausage with a French name. Many places have Mardi Gras, but the River Parishes bring “Rolling on the River” to locals as the floats pass by to the beat of the marching bands and the parade goers tap their feet to the river’s rhythm.
Please note, events and activities are subject to change.
The 2022 Mardi Gras parade schedule is as follows:
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 26
MARDI GRAS DAY – TUESDAY, MARCH 1
