The Krewe of Orion's 23rd annual Mardi Gras parade in downtown Baton Rouge will once again take place on Saturday, February 19, 2022, at 6:30 PM.
Parade goers will be treated to a line of exciting, colorfully-lighted, and tractor-pulled floats. Following the parade theme, "Glad to be Back", floats will be decorated to depict many items that tend to roll. On the floats, masked and costumed riders will throw plenty of themed parade medallions, Krewe of Orion signature footballs, cups, plush items, Orion doubloons, lighted throws, and beads. Marching bands, dance groups, and marching units (all of 20 members or more) will be among the great sights and sounds at this wonderful family-oriented parade.
The parade ends as it runs into the Raising Cane's River Center Exhibition Hall where our Masquerade is held.
