Courir des Enfants and Family Lundi Gras Party

Feb 24, 2020

This family-friendly parade sees children decked out in Mardi Gras costumes to begin the march from St. Bernard Church in Breaux Bridge, 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 afterwards at Teche Center for the Arts, with parents and grandparents welcome to share in the festivities. $5 per person.
