Lagniappe Living in Lake Charles, Louisiana

Experience Mardi Gras in Southwest Louisiana!


New residents moving  to Lake Charles are always curious of what to expect during Mardi Gras season.   I always like to send Lake Charles LA relocation buyers home with one of our King Cakes to introduce them to what they can look forward to!

Mardi Gras is not limited to just New Orleans!  Southwest Louisiana is located  about 182 miles away from New Orleans, LA and next to New Orleans, Lake Charles is the place to be!  Lake Charles has over 50 Krewes and is second in the state only to New Orleans with the number of krewes participating in Mardi Gras activities.   

Want to know what Mardi Gras is like in Lake Charles LA?

There are always a variety of fun things to do during Mardi Gras in Lake Charles LA


If you are lucky you might be an invited guest to one of the Krewe Balls in Lake Charles.  This year my friend and local Prudential Broker Daren Sarver was King Charles XXX of Krewe du Lac!

Where else would you expect to  find a respectible Lake Charles  Realtor dressed up in a tutu or disguise but in Louisiana!
