St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputies assisted in working 19 parades this Carnival season. This included one in Washington Parish, where deputies assisted Bogalusa Police Department with the Krewe of MCCA parade.  

STPSO deputies worked together with our municipal law enforcement agencies to maintain order and provide crowd and traffic control along parade routes in Slidell, Mandeville, Covington, Folsom, Abita Springs, Bush and Madisonville. 

Sheriff Smith is pleased to report there were no major incidents at any parade in St. Tammany Parish this Mardi Gras season.

“I am happy that St. Tammany krewes continue to provide a family-friendly option for our residents to enjoy every Carnival season,” Sheriff Smith said. “Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed the parades.”
