Our 2019 Queen and King were our Citizens of the Year, Michelle and Dave Kelsey. All Hail Queen Michelle and King David!
Our Grand Marshal was the Abita Springs Middle School Teacher of the Year, Brenda Blades.
Recently we added a children's costume contest for kids 12 and under. It was a big hit.
This down-home party, will move back to the Trailhead this year, offering great food, drinks, and prizes awarded to the best or weirdest parade participants.
So, if you're really going to get in the Carnival spirit, YOU GOTTA WEAR A COSTUME.
