Police caution residents to remain safe during Mardi Gras

Updated:

Mardi Gras is just one week away but Acadiana is already in the full swing of things. And that means a lot of planning has gone into the events.

But while the city says they're prepared, they're reminding the public of things to be weary of this time around.

Lafayette police say people need to be mindful of their surroundings before, during, and after the parade, since barricades and road closures will change up the normal routine.

And since open container is allowed during Mardi Gras festivities it's important to remember safety first.

"One of the things on the first parade, we saw a lot of people with glass bottles, so officers were having to tell them to discard." said Corporal Paul Mouton with the Lafayette Police Department.
