Over in Crowley, Acadia Parish Library kicked off their Mardi Gras celebrations.
They held a Mardi Gras shoe box decorating party! Families were able to bring a shoe box to the library, the supplies were provided and there was also a Mardi Gras photo booth for *masked* family pictures.
Program Librarian Clair Dore says the event allows children in the community to have fun with their parents while learning about arts and crafts.
We started this last year, and the kids bring in their own shoe boxes, and we cut the tops off of them and put them together for them and they can decorate however they want with the stuff that we provide. So they seem to enjoy it and its like an arts and crafts that parents can get involved, the grandparents can get involved so it kind of brings them together.”
