Eunice Lil' Mardi Gras

The traditional rural Mardi Gras celebration is based on early begging rituals. Riders donned in traditional costumes, masks and hats, also known as capuchons, ride horseback from house to house soliciting “donations” of food items to culminate in a community wide gumbo. This procession or “run” includes chicken chasing and silliness by revelers all day.

Children can get in on the fun as well! The Eunice Lil' Mardi Gras is a chicken run held for children and teens ages 0-14. Participants are broken up into different age groups, and are given an opportunity to catch a live chicken. 

Eunice Rec Complex | 8am | $15 per child | Preregistration at City Hall is advised
