With Mardi Gras Day on March 5th this year, we’ve got a long season. Hopefully it won’t be cold or sleeting this year like it was back in 2014 when Mardi Gras was on the 4th. Whatever the weather, we know you’ll be out there parading so we put together the Jefferson Parish Mardi Gras Parade Schedule for those of you that prefer Metairie and Jefferson Parish parades over New Orleans Mardi Gras parades sponsored by Pure Barre New Orleans & Metairie Road.
Remember Jefferson Parish Routes are likely to change in the weeks leading up to Mardi Gras. We will update routes as we get that information so please check back.
