    2 pretty big ones in Shreveport. Monroe has one. There are actually some mardi gras parades in East Texas. Or at least there have been in the past.

    I'm not aware of any. E.Texas is heavier Protestant and not the "Eat, drink and be merry. For tomorrow you may die." type.

    I haven't spent much time in North Louisiana. I still have the outdated image of Bible thumping protestants living in dry Parishes. Pretty smart of Shreveport to start their own and pull people in from the Dallas area.

    Been a while since I've spent time in South Louisiana. I still have the outdated image of purple and gold drunk lsu band wagon fans. Are you allowed to go to a parade w/out lsu garb?

    LOL! You forgot about everyone down here is drunk 24/7. Also we all look and sound like characters from the Waterboy. I'm guessing there are no mored dry Parishes in Louisiana?

    Nope! CENLA ended the dry parish thingy decades before the I-20 corridor did.
