Lafayette’s Krewe des Chiens Annual Dog Parade is a must-do. This parade is geared toward children, but brings out the dog lover in all of us. Vibrantly costumed fur babies proudly trot down Lafayette’s downtown streets as both participants and spectators. Everyone has a grin on their snout as beads are thrown, puppies are rescued and donations are accepted for Acadiana’s less fortunate furry friends!
