Mardi Gras Parade
The Carencro Mardi Gras Association will host the 38th annual Mardi Gras parade at 11 a.m., Feb. 19. The parade begins on Butcher Switch Rd. near Carencro High, and proceeds north on University Avenue to Debutante Rd. Roads on the route close at 10 a.m. The parade is expected to last about three hours.
Parade goers will be allowed to park at Pelican Park (two parking lots available) and behind the community center. Campers will not be allowed at either location. Parking will not be allowed at the Carencro Park location on N. University, since it will be used to stage public safety, law enforcement agencies, command center, fire and EMS personnel.
