The Krewe of Omega Mardi Gras parade will be held in downtown Lake Charles. The Krewe of Omega was formed in 1970 by Joseph Moffett Jr. and its purpose is to provide social activities for the young and elderly. The krewe also gives service awards to those who participate in the improvement of the community and its people. Krewe of Omega was formed to bring Mardi Gras activities to the black community. To this day, it is the only Southwest Louisiana krewe to hold its own parade. The parade is held each year on the Saturday prior to Mardi Gras. 

Parade Route:
Start on the Northside of Civic Center to Broad St. heading east to Enterprise Blvd, left on Enterprise to Mill St., left on Mill St. back to Civic Center.
