SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 20th, 2022 – PARADE THEME – “YOU KNOW IT’S MARDI GRAS WHEN…”
The parade starts informally on Spartan Drive at Fritchie Park and travels west to Pontchartrain Drive (Hwy 11) where it officially begins. The parade then heads north on Pontchartrain Drive into the heart of Slidell passing many of Slidell’s staple businesses such as Ace Insurance, Castaway’s and the Southside Cafe. The parade route then quickly jogs north and continues up Front Street (Hwy 11) turning right onto Bouscaren Street until it reaches 2nd Street where it turns left to pass City Hall for the Mayor and King’s Toast then on to Fremaux Avenue. At Fremaux Avenue, the parade turns left back to Front Street where it again turns north. The parade then takes a turn east onto one of Slidell’s signature streets, Gause Boulevard (Hwy 190), and heads towards the interstate (I-10), passing Slidell Memorial Hospital, Cross Gates Athletic Club followed by Copeland’s restaurant and The NOLA Grille before turning onto Kensington Boulevard just before the Rouse’s Supermarket where it ends.
