The City of Pineville, Louisiana

A Great Place to Call Home

Mardi Gras Parade

Each year, to kick off Mardi Gras Celebrations for the Cities of Pineville and neighboring Alexandria, the City of Pineville hosts its annual "Light the Night" Mardi Gras Parade. 

The 2019 parade kicks off at 7:00pm, on Feb 25, at the intersection of Main Street and Louisiana College Boulevard.  Traveling south on Main Street, through Downtown Pineville, the parade crosses the Gillis Long Bridge (Jackson Street Bridge) into Alexandria.  Then the parade turns left onto Third Street and ends just past the Alexandria Mini Park

This is a parade you don't want to miss! We hope to see you there.
