The Krewe of Barkus & Meoux held its annual Mardi Gras Pet Parade in LaDowns

BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) — In the spirit of Mardi Gras, the crew of Barks & Mews took to Louisiana Downs in Bossier City on Sunday (Feb. 4) for their annual pet parade.

The stars of the carnival procession were seen strutting their stuff and letting the good times roll in both the parade and the pet costume contest.

There were many food trucks and other vendors for this free, family-friendly event.

KSLA News 12’s Buskey Duncan and Priscilla Borrego were the judges for the pet costume contest. Both were very happy to see all the animals come out and celebrate.
