We've still got several Mardi Gras parades left but Fat Tuesday is quickly approaching and this year will be bigger than ever in the SBC! The New East Bank District will be hosting their first ever Fat Tuesday Festival. BeauxJax Crafthouse will be bringing music to the festival with tunes from the Shreveport Second Line Brass Band.

The parade will start at 6 pm outside of BeauxJax and run through the festival and back down to the craft house. Throwing beads rolling along with the parade will be the Twin City roller derby girls. Of course, the public is invited to join in on the parade and encouraged to bring handkerchiefs or umbrellas to make the experience even better.
