Things to Do: Mardi Gras Royal Gala, Lake Charles, Louisiana


Mardi Gras Royal Gala  February 27, 2017.  At Lake Charles Civic Center Coliseum.  $5-$6, under 5 free.  This is the only place in Louisiana where the general public can see all the Mardi Gras royalty in full costume.  The courts of more than 60 krewes appear in full regalia.  Krewes include kings, queens, royal dukes and duchesses, captains, courtesans, and jesters.  It is quite a show.
