Hundreds of thousands of revelers converge for Mardi Gras in this northwest Louisiana city, where the draws include a massive Martin Luther King Day parade by the Krewe of Harambee, dog and cat parades by the Krewe of Barkus and Meoux (Jan. 22), and a spectacular March 1 street jubilee with floats, throws, music and dancing hosted by the Krewes of Gemini and Centaur, two of the largest and oldest krewes in the region.
