Shreveport-Bossier Mardi Gras Fun Continues This Weekend
The good times roll this weekend and on Fat Tuesday with three final parades.
Saturday, February 25th, is the Krewe of Gemini Parade. It starts at 4:00pm on Clyde Fant Parkway in downtown Shreveport and will proceed down the Clyde Fant Parkway parade route.
Sunday, February 26th, is the Krewe of Highland Parade. It begins at 2 p.m. at Gilbert Drive and Gregg Avenue in the Highland neighborhood. The parade winds through the Highland neighborhood via Creswell Avenue, Centenary Boulevard and Olive Street. The Krewe of Highland parade is a little different from some of the other parades. Not only will you be able to catch some beads, but some float “throws” include grilled hot dogs, ramen noodles and more.
Fat Tuesday, February 28th, features the last parade of Shreveport-Bossier’s Mardi Gras season. It’s the Krewe de les Femmes Mystique Children’s Mardi Gras Parade. The parade features school groups, members of local law enforcement, and a few of the floats from other parades. It’s a family-friendly event and takes place from 6:30-7:30pm at Pierre Bossier Mall.
