Official Information from the Krewe of Carnivale en Rio website:
The Parada of the Krewe of Carnivale en Rio has become the premier Mardi Gras event in Acadiana. The Parada has become known for its colorful floats, dazzling lights and dancers and the huge amount of beads, throws and custom maracas we shower on the faithful parade-goers.
The krewe will have loads of beads, amazing throws and custom maracas to toss out to the thousands that come out for this Mardi Gras Kick Off event. Make sure you have your RIO ROCKS signs ready!
