2023 Mardi Gras Rally

Here it is, folks!  For all those who have never been treated to a Mardi Gras celebration In Louisiana—lend me your ears!  We will be going to Lafayette, LA for 2023 Mardi Gras parades and festivities on February 16-23, 2023. Call Cajun Palms RV Resort, 337-667-7772, tell them you are with the Traveling Supremes, and MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS SOON!  We have 15 spaces reserved but there is an October 17, 2022 deadline for sign-up. This is a very popular resort which fills up fast so if you think you might go, make a reservation. They have a very reasonable cancellation policy. 

We plan to go to some parades, eat our fill of Cajun food (someone’s famous gumbo and someone’s bread pudding?), and tour around South Louisiana to our hearts’ content.  BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!!

Mardi Gras!

Not a Rally, not even a gathering, but more like a get together… the Butauds, Cooks, Laninga’s and Moreaus met in Lafayette for some fun togetherness. And, of course, with it being Mardi Gras we had to attend the parade and collect beads. But before all that Marie prepared some most excellent shrimp etouffe. Too bad Burnel was feeling under the weather but except for that the hospitality and getting together was most appreciated. Even the weather held with no rain or cold spell!

The parade started by some impressively large horse patrols

There was some most impressive musical effort taking place
