The Krewe of Orion’s 21st annual Mardi Gras parade in downtown Baton Rouge will take place on February 15, 2020, at 6:30 PM.
Parade goers will be treated to a line of exciting, colorfully-lighted, and tractor-pulled floats. Following the parade theme, (that will be announced August 2019), floats will be decorated to depict many items that tend to roll. On the floats, masked and costumed riders will throw plenty of themed parade medallions, Krewe of Orion signature footballs, cups, plush items, Orion doubloons, lighted throws, and beads. Marching bands, dance groups, and marching units (all of 20 members or more) will be among the great sights and sounds at this wonderful family-oriented parade.
The parade ends as it runs into the Raising Cane’s River Center Exhibition Hall where our Masquerade is held. Tickets will be available in the fall for our annual Masquerade! Visit our Tickets page for more information. This is the PREEMINENT Mardi Gras party. Each year we have a premier dance band for our entertainment!
Our 2020 Krewe of Orion parade is no longer accepting anymore dance groups because we are now at capacity in that category.
