Two Mardi Gras parades roll Tuesday in Covington

Mardi Gras season fans in Covington will be able to enjoy two parades on Fat Tuesday (Feb. 9). The Covington Lions Club procession starts at 10 a.m., followed by the Mystic Krewe of Covington.

Covington Lions was founded in 1959, the Krewe of Covington in 1952. They are often considered great parades for those who do not want to stress over parking and want to enjoy Carnival with their young children.
