Our 2017queen was Abita Springs Citizen of the Year Rachel Lambert. She chose her husband as King, Dalton "Big Daddy Rat" Lambert.
In 2017, we added a children's costume contest! It's for kids 12 and under. This down-home Party in the Park offers great food, drinks, and prizes awarded to the best or weirdest parade participants.
If you're really going to get in the Carnival spirit, you gotta WEAR A COSTUME.
