Southwest Louisiana is anticipating the return of the Lake Charles Mardi Gras Chicken Run and Parade. Well the wait is officially over as it will be coming back this Sunday at the Lake Charles Civic Center!

I can remember the first time I ever had the chance to attend the chicken run, the food was off the charts. However it was tripped out when I saw the caged chickens being released and chased by children. Of course after the initial shock, the took the party to the inside and the show was on. This Sunday it all kicks off at noon with the parade to include floats, 4 wheelers and horses. Unfortunately no individual cars will be allowed. You must pre register your horses @ (337) 660-1050 or (337) 439-0061 and be ready for a great time. After the actual chicken run and parade, the party goes to the inside of the civic center with performances from Rusty Metoyer and Zydeco Crush, J. Paul Jr and The Zydeco Nu Breed and Chris Ardoin and Nu Step. Keep listening for your chance to win tickets here on The People Station 107 Jamz!
