Things to Do: Krewe of Krewes’ Parade, Lake Charles, Louisiana


Krewe of Krewes’ Parade  February 28, 2017.  Free.  More than 100 elaborate krewe floats pulled by big rigs wind through downtown Lake Charles with their krewes aboard throwing beads to one and all.  I collected pounds of them and wore them all.  By the way, it doesn’t feel good if you get hit in the head or face by hurled beads, so keep your wits about you.    
          Southern Spice restaurant is a great spot to hole up for the event.  The kitchen provides a bountiful buffet of southern dishes, plus plenty of drinks.
