We spent Mardi Gras this year in Lafayette, Louisiana with family. We had a great time. However, just like my trip the weekend before to Baton Rouge, there were traffic problems on the way to Lafayette, so we missed the Friday night parade.
Also, like my trip in Baton Rouge, parades made for interesting navigation problems. We were re-routed when we left Henderson Sunday because of parades. My advice to you, before you make a trip anywhere in south Louisiana during Mardi Gras season, CHECK THE PARADE SCHEDULES!

Below is a video of the Lafayette, Louisiana motorcycle police doing fancy stuff at the beginning of the parade.
