The Mardi Gras season is here and tomorrow is Mardi Gras weekend with a bunch of parades. The Krewe of Krewe Parade takes place tomorrow starting at 5:00 pm and will leave the Lake Charles Event Center and head East down Mill Street then turn right on Ryan Street and head South down Ryan Street and end in South Lake Charles at Sale Road.

Thousands upon thousands of people from all over Southwest Louisiana descend on Lake Charles to attend the parades and they fill up Ryan Street and stake their claim for the best spots.

They do this in the hopes of catching a bounty of things but sometimes the things thrown at the Mardi Gras parades are a little strange. We have been in hundreds of Mardi Gras parades in Southwest Louisiana and we thought about some of the strange things we have seen thrown at the parades.
