Courir des Enfants and Lundi Gras Party, Breaux Bridge

Families are invited to a children’s Mardi Gras run that meets at Parc des Pont, along Bayou Teche, next to St. Bernard School. Children parade with their families through the streets, children decked out in Mardi Gras costumes singing and playing Cajun music on fiddles, guitars, and percussion, while “begging” for and receiving gumbo ingredients from homes along Washington Street skirting Bayou Teche. The children chase and catch a chicken along the parade route and share gumbo and dancing at TCA afterward. Children, parents, and grandparents are welcome to share in the festivities.

Admission: to the experience $5, run, gumbo, and entertainment.  For more information, please call 337-366-0629.
