I went to the Orion Mardi Gras ball and it occurred to me that I hadn't put up a schedule for Mardi Gras events in Baton Rouge yet. Its probably the second most important thing that takes place in Baton Rouge behind LSU football season so it definitely requires a schedule here on my website. In past years I've looked for parade schedules online and haven't found them so I'm obligated to produce something for all the people wishing to see parades in Baton Rouge. They're smaller than all the New Orleans madness not to mention New Orleans is in pretty bad shape this year after Hurricane Katrina. I say smaller but they're still large and fun with beads, booze and parties. I'll try just to list big parades that I've enjoyed or have heard were good. So lets see what we can do...
