Costume Contest & Parade


The Krewe of Tradition organizes a hand-made foot parade that is a showcase for visual and performance artists in Houma, LA and our beloved Mardi Gras guests.

We encourage all participants to come in costume & bring eco-friendly “throws” to hand out during this walking parade.  Krewe of Tradition members create a special pecan throw to share with lucky parade-goers! We protest harmful imported throws by making our own, locally.

Costume Contest:

Handmade costumes are encouraged! Prizes include King & Queen of Tradition, Duke & Maid of Tradition, Paige of Tradition (children’s award category), Pets and Group Awards.

ALL ages welcome! Children must be accompanied by an adult. No entry fee to participate! Event will be cancelled in cases of hard rain, lightening or freezing temperatures. Updates will be posted to our Facebook page. (
