Lil Nate's Zydeco Mardi Gras Parade & Chicken Run
1939 W. Landry St.
Opelousas LA 70570
Every year, Lil’ Nate and his zydeco “krewe” host a huge party during Mardi Gras weekend in Opelousas, Louisiana. The party begins with live music Saturday night by Lil’ Nate & The Zydeco Big Timers and other zydeco music bands. Sunday afternoon the parade and trail ride leave the grounds of the Yambilee and at 2pm, a chicken chase takes place for all ages. Stick around for more live music at the Yambilee in the evening.
