“join in the merriment of Mardi Gras”

To catch a glimpse of these costumes throughout the history of the Lake Charles Mardi Gras, be sure to visit the Mardi Gras Museum of Imperial Calcasieu, located at 809 Kirby Street. This museum is a real gem with some of the most fantastic costumes ever on display. A highlight is the animated mannequins that tell the story of Mardi Gras or the talking Mardi Gras chickens that are trying to escape being cooked up in a gumbo pot! At the museum, there are various rooms set up that tell the story of baking King Cakes as well as costume making. You can also climb aboard a Mardi Gras float, hear the cheering crowds and pretend that you are actually in a parade!
