I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year celebrating with their loved ones. But as one holiday season ends, a new celebration begins.
I would like to extend an invitation to you and your family and friends to come experience Mardi Gras in Slidell. Grab your folding chairs, ice chests and king cakes—and head on out to the parade route to enjoy the many parades that roll through Slidell.
I am proud that many families choose to celebrate Mardi Gras here in Slidell. I ask that everyone be respectful and help us maintain a fun, family-friendly environment that we all love and enjoy.
Please remember that city ordinances prohibit the presence of animals along the parade route. The use of silly string, streamers, fireworks and other explosive devices are also prohibited. It is important that we all work together to have a fun and safe carnival season.
Also, Keep Slidell Beautiful is looking for volunteers to help clean up after the parades. If you or your family, church group, civic group or school group would like to volunteer, please call 985-646-4307 or visit Keep Slidell Beautiful’s website at keepslidellbeautiful.org for more information.
For the parade schedule, visit the city’s website, MySlidell.com.
