Young revelers and their family members parade through Breaux Bridge during a children’s courir de Mardi Gras hosted by the Teche Center for the Arts Monday, February 11, 2018, in Breaux Bridge, La. A courir de Mardi Gras is the traditional celebration of Mardi Gras by costumed and masked revelers who travel from house to house singing, dancing and begging for ingredients for gumbo. The highlight of the tradition is when revelers chase down and catch chickens.
