There are at least 80 Lake Charles Mardi Gras Krewes. You will see floats from most of them Tuesday at the Krewe Of Krewes parade.

You'll find  a history of Lake Charles Krewes here. For parade routes and details click here. We have some great Krewe names here like Contraband, Lunatiques, Gens Contents, Chaos and more. We are waiting for someone to form the Krewe of Gator. I found this video of the Krewe of Krewes parade on you tube. You may see someone you know. We will be out along the parade route Tuesday making videos for this site and saying hello. We will be looking for the best parade route cooks. If you are cooking along the route send us a e-mail and let us know so we can feature you and your krewe.
