The two Acadiana organizations are teaming up for a clean  - up project but need your help.

Project Front Yard is once again teaming up with Krewe of Rio to keep Mardi Gras clean and green. Project Front Yard is look for volunteers who will be the last 'float' in the Rio Parade, collecting unwanted Mardi Gras throws and any trash on the roads.

Volunteers are asked to meet at Pontiac Point prior to the start of the parade. Ages 10 and up are recommended because of the length of the parade route. All volunteers receive a commemorative Project Front Yard t - shirt. More info can be found on the event's Facebook page. .
