One of the most fun Mardi Gras parades in Acadiana is the Krewe des Chiens dog parade, and this year, the 16th annual parade will be held  Saturday, February 22, at 2:00 pm. Krewe des Chiens is a non-profit volunteer organization that supports animal charities in the Acadiana area, and the parade is open to all breeds, sizes and origins of dogs. The only requirement is a good temperament and a desire to help less fortunate animals. A completed Membership Form and $25 dues in advance are required for membership ($35 on Parade Day). Registration is open right now, and pre registration goes through Friday, February 21, to not only walk in the parade, or become a parade sponsor, but you can become a court jester for the event!  You can also register the day of the event, and of course you won’t want to miss the annual Costume Contest, which will be held at noon. There are going to be vendors and food trucks and lots of fun for the whole family in front of Parc Putnam! The theme for Krewe des Chiens this year is Las Vegas Casino des Chiens, so it should be a whole lot of fun! Check out the parade map, and get ready for a howling good time on this Saturday, February 22!
