Calling all Sweet Potato Queens! The Sweet Potato Queen herself is coming to Bossier City AND she's bringing George!

That's right, Jill Conner Browne, the author behind The Sweet Potato Queens series, is coming to Bossier City in all her glory on Fat Tuesday as the grand marshal for the Children's Mardi Gras Parade hosted by the women of the Krewe de les Femmes Mystique.

This family favorite parade is held annually at Pierre Bossier Mall and falls on Tuesday, February 12, 2018 (Fat Tuesday). Festivities will kick off at 6:30pm! So grab your trusty majorette boots and your tiara and get ready to catch some beads!

FYI, this year's annual Sweet Potato Queen weekend will take place in Jackson, MS (duh) Thursday, March 22 - Sunday, March 25, 2018.
