The Long Beach Bayou Festival is back with its Mardi Gras atmosphere, Cajun and Creole food delicacies and top notch music in a new location this year! This popular festival tradition continues with a colorful costumed Mardi Gras parade led each day by the New Orleans Traditional Jazz Band, and a delectable French Quarter marketplace with crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, gumbo, and other Cajun delights — plus a variety of desserts. The popular crawfish and watermelon eating contests also return this year.
Children of all ages appreciate the Kids Corner featuring storytelling, sing-a-longs, arts and crafts, magic, pony rides, and costume and mask making for the Mardi Gras Parade. The Kids Corner also features kids shows and games and activities for older kids.
