There may be a few traffic delays going on in the Lafayette area today, but it's for a good reason. Mardi Gras barricades will be going up throughout the day. Please be patient with the workers setting up the barricades because parades begin this weekend.
Mardi Gras is coming up February 12th and with only two weekends left before, things really start to heat up. It's a busy schedule this weekend and there will be plenty of opportunities for you to catch some good beads!
A threat of storms late Tuesday should yield to beautiful weather for weekend parades throughout Acadiana. The warm temperatures of Sunday should stick around one more day and then things will begin to change.
There's many unique things about South Louisiana, one of those being Mardi Gras problems. Like, when are the barricades going up? Look no further my friends and behold, the 3013 Mardi Gras barricade schedule!
