Jamie Lynn Spears, Nashville recording artist, actress, native Louisianian and sister of pop mega-star Britney Spears, will reign as a Celebrity Monarch for this year's Krewe of Mardi Paws parade, which will make its festive 2015 march along the Mandeville Lakefront on Sunday, Feb. 22nd... read more from Bachman on NOLA.com
Eight canines will reign over the 21st annual Mardi Paws celebration Feb. 22 on the Mandeville lakefront. The parade will roll at 2 p.m. with same-day registration for participants taking place at the Mandeville harbor at 12:30 p.m. The event is unique in a number of ways. For example, noted carnival historian Arthur Hardy gives the krewe credit for holding the only parade after Fat Tuesday, thereby avoiding any competition. Another distinction is that it is one of the few canine parades. But perhaps the most important difference between Mardi Paws and a "normal" parade is that it serves as a fundraiser for local charitable nonprofits. The hundreds of participating canines and their companions are not only showing off and having fun, they are supporting
groups that enrich the lives of local children and
animals. Reigning as 2015 Parade Marshals will be
local Miracle League participants Ella Vidal and
Clayton Burke. They will be joined by some of
their teammates, as well as their coach,
Heath Allen of WDSU...
