Mardi Gras 2017 will be here before we know it and one of the signature events here in Acadiana for the last 20+ years has been Le Festival de Mardi Gras a Lafayette at Cajun Field.

This year's Festival runs Friday, February 24th through Mardi Gras Day, February 28th.

The festivities include the Louisiana Lottery midway with tons of great rides, games and food. The parades also run right through the fairgrounds.
