Breaux Bridge—Families are invited to a children’s Mardi Gras run that meets at Parc des Pont, along Bayou Teche, next to St. Bernard School. Children parade with their families through the streets, with children decked out in Mardi Gras costumes, 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 TCA, located at 210 E. Bridge Street. Children, parents, and grandparents are welcome to share in the festivities.
