The Krewe of Bilge

Founded in 1978 by a few local residents who costumed and decorated their boats to parade along the canals of the Eden Isles subdivision in celebration of the Carnival season, the Krewe of Bilge is celebrating its 42nd year with a membership of over 400 members. Frequently listed as one of the Top 20 Events by the Southern Tourism Society, the Krewe will once again take to the waterways of Slidell, Louisiana tossing beads, cups and other favors to the shoreline on February 4th, 2023 at Noon. The Krewe also conducts social events throughout the year for its members and hosts one of the area’s largest Poker Runs held on the Sunday of every Memorial Day Weekend.

Good spots for the public to see the parade and catch throws are The Dock off Lakeview Drive, at various restaurants, bars and businesses along Highway 11 including The Landing and Tooloula;s and on the east side of the parade route, at the Firehouse on Marina Drive.
