Get your purple, green and gold – it’s time to be a little bit gaudy! The Mardi Gras season builds to this moment with the Krewe of Krewes Parade winding through four miles of Lake Charles tossing thousands of beads to cheering crowds. The atmosphere is nothing short of electric. It is the norm for individuals to line Ryan Street in Lake Charles the morning of the parade to claim their spot and tailgate with friends all day.
Over 60 krewes participate on floats of varying sizes blasting music and creating a fun party atmosphere. All you have to do to enjoy yourself if hold up your hands and yell “Throw me somethin’ mister!”
