Going to the Dogs in Lake Charles at the Krewe of Barkus Parade

Nothing stops a Mardi Gras event not even wind, rain or cold weather!

I bundled up and headed out to the Lake Charles Civic Center today for one of my favorite events,  the Krewe of Barkus parade. It was cold and windy and the parade went quickly to finish before the rain! Take a look at what you missed, it was fun despite the cold weather. My favorite this year was the Pomeranian with the elaborate feathers!

The Lake Charles Civic Center is the starting point for all the Lake Charles Mardi Gras parades so there are lots of motor homes already parked in the lot and the carnival rides are set up.

It was very windy this afternoon and about 53 degrees. Someone please alert the weatherman to let him know that this is the South and we want a nice weekend of sunshine for Mardi Gras!
