Request from Clarence: One of my hobbies is running a free cajun accordion loan program. I get a lot of requests to borrow an accordion from aspiring musicians. If you are feeling generous and would like to support a good cajun cause, how about making a financial contribution to help me buy another accordion to loan out? Please read more about it at Clarence's Cajun Accordion Loan Program.

New Roads’ first recorded ball was held in 1881 and its earliest-known parade rolled in 1897. Each year, as many as 90,000 revelers visit the Pointe Coupee Parish seat, located on the banks of beautiful False River, to enjoy the family-friendly celebration of lavish floats, high stepping bands and dance teams, resplendent royalty, tons of throws, great local cuisine and wholesome day-long fun. Unlike the parades in New Orleans and elsewhere, New Roads’ parade participation is open to the public, new floats are built each year and there is an abundance of parking adjacent to the parade route and in off-street parking areas. Mardi Gras falls on February 21 in 2012, and New Roads is set to stage its biggest, most elaborate and greatest family-oriented Carnival celebration ever.
