The Courir de Mardi Gras in Church Point is a traditional Cajun Mardi Gras where costumed men chase chickens at various homes and eventually make their way into the town with the parade of floats and trail riders. At the end of the parade, the chickens are cooked into a gumbo to be shared by the community as the tradition goes. A Children's Courir and parade take place the day before on Saturday. More Info
