La Chanson De Mardi Gras, is a traditional folk song sung during the Courir de Mardi Gras parade. Also known as Cajun Mardi Gras, Courir's roots tie it to the french colonists of the 17th century. Dressed in traditional handmade costumes, the Mardi Gras parade though the town on horseback and foot, bringing chicken and beads to throw to the surrounding villagers.
