The Krewe of Highland Parade is one of Shreveport's most eccentric parades. It's in a diverse neighborhood reflected in the fun floats and parade throws. It's not unusual to catch a grilled hot dog, Moon Pie, Ramen noodles and of course beads, beads, beads. Marilynn's Place, located at 4041 Fern Avenue in Shreveport, normally throws a Mardi Gras Bash along the parade route following the parade. Columbia Park, located at 600 Columbia Street, is a great place for families to gather.
The parade begins at Gilbert Drive and Ockley Drive in Shreveport. The parade will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017.
