People of all ages are challenged to test their creativity and Mardi Gras spirit during the annual King’s Court Costume Contest set for 9 a.m. This family-oriented contest, welcomes individuals, couples and groups, and kicks off Mardi Gras day, Feb 21 at Parc Sans Souci in downtown Lafayette. The theme for this year's event is "Gabriel's Masquerade", so you have plenty of time to get your costume together for one of the most fun and family oriented events of the Mardi Gras season here in Lafayette.

FYI - I will be your Mistress of Ceremonies once again, and some of the judges include KATC TV 3's Tracy Wirtz, Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission's Gerald Breaux, and from KLFY TV 10, Gary Arnold.

Make your plans to bring the whole family to Parc Sans Souci for Mardi Gras Day, ya'll!
