Photos: Les Malfacteurs 2023

Published on: February 19th, 2023

This is Courir de Mardi Gras Les Malfecteurs in Church Point, Louisiana. The traditional courir-- the French word for run-- is led by the capitaine, followed by costumed and masked participants on horseback, foot, or trailer. They make their pilgrimmage, singing and dancing to collect ingredients to make a communal gumbo, the highlight being the chicken that is chased and caught. Thank you to WWOZ volunteer photographer MJ Mastrogiovanni for sharing these photos.
