Good Friday is not a holiday for garbage collectors. Residents in Lafayette Parish who have regularly-scheduled garbage or recycling collection on Friday, will receive those services on Friday, as both Allied Waste and the Recycling Foundation will work on Good Friday.
You already know Lafayette is a wonderful place to live. There's the unique culture, the delicious food - our holidays are rooted in family traditions. Before or after Church, there are some pretty cool and/or unusual things to do around Lafayette for Easter.
Everyone enjoys putting on their best green clothes on March 17th and being Irish for a day. We’ve all heard there was a saint and something to do with snakes in Ireland and now we have parades and drink green beer. But what do we really know about St. Patrick’s Day?
Everyone knows that St. Patrick’s Day is the one day out of the year when we’re all Irish. And, apparently that translates into wearing anything green and silly we can get our hands on and having as much to drink as we can carry at one time. But, there’s another strange tradition that has developed in celebration of this day. We can’t explain it. Are Irish people really that into unnaturally green food?

After attending a St. Patrick's Day parade in New Orleans and being bombed with vegetables, we surely could have come home and opened a produce stand. Instead, we made a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner. Hope you like it as much as we did.
Did you know that President Taft was the first president to toss the ceremonial first pitch before a Major League Baseball game? He did in in 1910 on Opening Day at Griffith Stadium before a Washington Senators game. Since Taft, every president has followed suit taking the mound at some point during his presidency.
Franklin Roosevelt holds the record for the most times a president got the honor, hurling nine different times (eight opening days and an All-Star Game). Here’s a look back at some of the more memorable performances of presidents over the past century:
Some changes to the residential waste collection schedule happen during Mardi Gras week. Customers who have regular Monday service with Allied Waste and the Recycling Foundation will receive their usual garbage and recycling service
Do you get more throws at the beginning of the parade route, the middle or the end? Where's the best food? Is one area better for families, party people, out-of-towners? Everybody has a favorite spot to watch the parades. Tell us your favorite spot:
