Planning a camping trip during Mardi Gras this February? If so, we’ve rounded up a few KOA Campgrounds across the U.S.A. with fun activities just for you.
4 KOA Campgrounds where you can celebrate Mardi Gras:
- LAFAYETTE KOA
- Cajun Style Mardi Gras – Experience the Old Mardi Gras like it was done years ago in the countryside. Courirs ride horseback from house to house dancing for ingredients to add to the big Gumbo cooking back in town. That night everyone gathers for a taste of that wonderful Gumbo and dance the night away. This event is fun for the whole family.
- Lafayette Mardi Gras – Held in February or March. Mardi Gras day is the Tuesday prior to Ash Wednesday. Parades and activities throughout the area kick off 2 weekends before Mardi Gras and run till Mardi Gras day. We even have one that passes directly in front of our park. All you need to do is carry your chair up to the park entrance and pick your spot along the road.
