Easter egg hunts, meetings, barbeques, and even Mardi Gras parades - Southside has it all. See what we're up to below.

















Neighborhood Area Activities


The Southside area is home to two of the most vibrant parades in Baton Rouge.  















Each year area residents who comprise the Krewe of Southdowns stage a lively parade through the heart of the Southside area, on the Friday night before Mardi Gras. All are welcome to join in this great neighborhood event with your participation - it's one of the gems that makes the Southdowns area truly special.

St. Patrick's Day Parade


Another community parade that has become a Baton Rouge traditional is the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Typically the parade begins at the corner of Hundred Oaks and South Acadian Thruway (by Catholic Life Center), takes a right on Eugene, takes a left on Terrace, then takes a final left on Perkins Road and continues down over the overpass ending just under the interstate. All floats continue to roll through the intersection at Lee Drive though the parade has ended.
