Victory Sponsors Family Friendly Mardi Gras Event!
Victory Addiction Recovery Center partners with local coalition to provide Family Friendly Mardi Gras!
Victory Addiction Recovery Center is joining The Knowledge Effect to help put on their 7th annual Family Friendly Mardi Gras on February 17, 2015. The Knowledge Effect is a coalition based in Lafayette. Their main goal is to make our community a safe place for families to live through raising awareness of and preventing substance abuse.
Enjoy Mardi Gras in an Alcohol and Tobacco Free Environment!
One of the ways they accomplish that goal is providing a safe, fun, and healthy environment that will allow families to enjoy the Mardi Gras festivities in an alcohol-and-tobacco-free atmosphere. As we all know, much of the revelry during the festival season includes consuming alcohol. This event will show that having a good time doesn’t have to involve drinking or taking drugs.
All the fun will happen right off the parade route, at Parc Putnam in downtown Lafayette on Fat Tuesday. Putnam is located across from the Federal Courthouse on Lafayette Street. The location is ideal for getting great throws and enjoying the parades that pass right in front of the Family Friendly Mardi Gras area.
Join the Celebration February 17, 2015, Starting at 9:00 AM!
The event starts at 9am, an hour before the Kings Parade rolls, and wraps up at 4pm right after the conclusion of the Independent parade. But the excitement and fun won’t go away between parades. The Family Friendly Mardi Gras has free food and drinks, fun jumps, and games, along with alcohol and drug awareness activities for the kids to learn the dangers of substance abuse.
This event was so successful, which we attribute to partners, donors, and volunteers from the Lafayette community.
