NEW ROADS - One of the longest running Mardi Gras traditions in the state is making proper return this year after the pandemic upended the celebration last year.

Organizers in New Roads announced Thursday that the Lions Club Mardi Gras Parade  and Community Center of Pointe Coupee Mardi Gras Parade will make their "grand return" on Feb. 28 and March 1. The latter is the second-oldest parade in the state, with this year marking its 100th anniversary. 

"Visitors to the Prettiest City on the Water can gather along the route for family-friendly parades with marching bands, dancers, floats, and plenty of beads," the city said in statement. 

Last year, the celebrations were pared down to a drive-thru-only parade without crowds due to the coronavirus.
