Krewe des Cheins des Opelousas

In February of 2020 we piloted our first dog parade for Mardi Gras as another fundraiser. Dogs were decked out by their owners and paraded around South Park. There was face painting, a photo booth, vendors, and we sold chillin’ dogs aka chili dogs. This was such a fun event and again a great way to support a great cause. Our 2nd annual Krewe De Chein was bigger and better. It was moved to courthouse square for visibility.

We hosted our Krewe De Chein Parade on February 18, 2023 and we had face painting, a photos both, vendors and we we sold homemade dog treats.
