Sulphur celebrated the Mardi Gras 2017 season with a parade and activities centered around Heritage Square on Saturday, February 18. Starting at noon Amy Nicole & Zydeco Soul took to the stage at the Heritage Square Pavilion, cranking out classic Zydeco music with the washboard and accordion leading the beat. On the grounds, attendees were able to grab a snack and cold drink from the food trucks and let the kiddos burn off energy in the bounce house and bounce slide, and maybe get a quick face painting before heading over to the Mardi Gras parade scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Laser tag was also a big hit with kids and adults alike. The King Cake Taste-Off was held immediately after the conclusion of the parade at Henning Cultural Center and all events were free.
