The Krewe of Bilge boat parade in the Eden Isles Subdivision in Slidell on Sunday, Jan. 28.
The Krewe of Bilge boat parade starts at the Marina Cafe, passes through the marina basin, goes past the Dock of Slidell and then turns north and enters what is known as the “Firehouse Canal”.
Parade travels North along the Eden Isles side of the canal northward to the East Eden Isles Boulevard bridge where I took these pictures.
The better spot to see the parade (and earn more Mardi Gras Beads) is at the Firehouse on Marina Drive.
The Krewe of Bilge Mardi Gras Parade was started in 1978 by a few Eden Isles residents who decorated their small boats, which included pirogues, and began parading.
Thanks for all The Krewe of Bilge boats and all the sheriff boats today!
