Mardi Gras In Lafayette Louisiana
Wayne Toups Mardi Gras
No doubt New Orleans has fabulous parades for Mardi Gras, but Lafayette has its own unique blend of festivities for the Carnival season. A mix of parades, food, and music has a Cajun flair that keeps visitors coming back. The Cajun Field opens on Friday before Mardi Gras with rides, food, and great music. Festivities continue until Mardi Gras night with a lineup of outstanding music. For many the highlight of 2008 was the Lundi Gras performance of Wayne Toups. This high energy music of Acadiana’s favorite son sees fans more than a 100 deep around the Home Bank Stage, enjoying music that plays in their minds long after they leave. The performance alone of this unique blend of Cajun and Zydeco music makes the trip worthwhile.
Lafayette Mardi Gras Parade Float
Mardi Gras Day sees miles of parade route lined with lawn chairs, bar-b-que pits, and families having a good time. Lafayette Carnival is a relaxing event with plenty of parking and room to catch throws along the parade route. First, the King’s Parade rolls, and after a short interlude, the Lafayette Parade and Independent Parade follow. Many floats roll down the parade route to the sound of Zydeco music—something you don’t get with the super parades of New Orleans. The last float passes around 4:00 and the crowd moves back to the Cajun field with stacks of beads on their necks.
Cajun Food Tent
Save your appetite for this experience because there’s plenty of Cajun flavor in the food tents at the Cajun Field. Yes, you’ll find funnel cakes and chicken on a stick that you would expect, but along with it are gumbo, jambalaya, shrimp on a stick, and crawfish etouffee. The lineup of great music continues at no charge with The Andy Smith Band performing last in 2008. This talented band holds the crowd to the last song with its trademark blend of classic southern rock with a Cajun flair.
