Here are some things you need to know:

First, the forecast for Thursday is partly sunny Thursday with a high of 75 with a low of 59 Thursday night so you may want to bundle up for the parade.

The theme this year for the parade is AREA 337 so it will have a alien feel.

The parade starts at 7pm this Thursday, October 17th, 2019.

The parade route will start on the corner of East Lagrange Street and Ryan Street in Lake Charles.  Then will turn South on Ryan Street and head down the road to McNeese Street.  The parade will then turn left on East McNeese Street and end at the football stadium.

So make sure to get out there Thursday and show your Cowboy spirit!
