BREAUX BRIDGE, La. (KLFY)- Families are invited to a children’s Mardi Gras run that meets in front of St. Bernard Church in Breaux Bridge, LA, at 9:30 a.m., Monday, February 24, 2020.

Children parade with their families through the streets, with children decked out in Mardi Gras costumes, singing and playing Cajun music on fiddles, guitars, and percussion, while “begging” for and receiving gumbo ingredients from homes along Washington Street skirting Bayou Teche.
