All Police Jury Offices Closed for Mardi Gras
All Calcasieu Parish Police Jury departments will be closed Tuesday, March 5, for Mardi Gras. Offices will reopen on Wednesday, March 6.
Garbage and trash pickup will run as normally scheduled for Waste Management customers.
The Residential Solid Waste Convenience Centers in Lake Charles and Sulphur will be closed – both sites are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week.
A reminder that “The Zone,” a family-friendly, alcohol-and-tobacco-free area targeted for families with children and teens, will be open from noon - 4 p.m. right on the parade route - in the empty parking lot between the Charleston Building and the Parish Courthouse on Ryan Street.
There will be a live DJ, laser tag, bounce houses, train rides, face painting – and even a game truck. There will also be plenty of hot dogs, popcorn, Pops and Rockets popsicles, cotton candy and soda.
