BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The LSU Lakes have gone pink. The annual flock of Flamingos have set up camp in the water.

It's a reminder that Baton Rouge's Biggest Mardi Gras Parade --Spanish Town-- is right around the corner and it also means the date for the Mardi Gras ball has been announced.

Spanish Town organizers place about 20 giant, plywood, pink flamingos in the LSU Lakes. Motorists on I-10 will slow down to see the giant birds.

25th Annual Ball is scheduled for Saturday, February 15, 2014 and will be held at The Baton Rouge River Center. The doors open at 7 p.m.  More details on the ball can be found here: http://www.spanishtownmardigras.com/ball.htm.  

The theme for the 2014 parade and ball is Flamingo Dynasty. 

The Spanish Town Mardi Gras parade rolls at 12:00 Noon on March 1, 2014. Click this link for the parade route and other information:http://www.spanishtownmardigras.com/parade.htm
