Mardi Gras is here folks! Today starts a five day celebration here in Southwest Louisiana of events, Balls, and parades.  The next five days will be nothing but fun all over the area.

With the Mardi Gras holiday, kids will be off of school and some businesses will also be closed.  That also includes the offices and services for the City of Lake Charles.

Due to the holiday, folks in the Lake Charles metro area will have interruptions in their garbage and trash pickups. Matt young with the City Of Lake Charles said,

Trash and garbage normally picked up on Tuesday will be rescheduled for pickup on Wednesday, February 14, 2018.

Monday, Thursday, and Friday routes will remain on their regular schedules.

So make sure you make the necessary arrangements.  Happy Mardi Gras everyone!
