Krewe du Pooch 2024

Krewe du Pooch is a Mardi Gras dog parade & costume contest on the lakefront in Mandeville, LA.   It includes a marketplace, food trucks &, of course, pet adoptions from local rescue groups, who are supported through the non-profit’s mission.  Hosted by the city of Mandeville & Krewe du Pooch, the annual event sees thousands of people & pups pack the lakefront for this day long paw-ty.

During the 2024 Mardi Gras season, over 40 dogs were adopted out via pre-parade adoption events, day-of & post-parade adoptions.  This in addition to funds raised to help the rescue groups made the 2024 parade a huge success!

Emcee Kenny Lopez along with celebrity judges Trishelle Canatella, Terrance Osborne & Desi Vega awarded prizes to the costume contest winners following the parade.  Families enjoyed the children’s area sponsored by the Children’s Museum of St. Tammany Parish, Keep Mandeville Beautiful & the St. Tammany Parish Library.  Boogie Booth provided an on site photo booth for pictures & gifs as well as a cool option using their virtual photo booth to add a cute frame to any other photo you’d snapped yourself.  The VIP tent looked beautiful with florals provided by Berry Blossom Flowers & mixed drinks compliments of Geaux Mobile Bar & Raising Cane’s.
