Cinderella spreads a little magic through Lafayette Parish neighborhoods

Posted at 10:35 PM, Apr 10, 2020

Several Lafayette Parish neighborhoods were transformed into kingdoms Friday night, as a princess paraded through the streets in her carriage.

It was the first Princess Parade, hosted by The Lafayette Princess, a company recently created by local resident Katelyn Guidry. Guidry says the company was created to help bring joy to children during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cinderella was the featured princess in Friday's parade, and traveled through neighborhoods in Broussard and Lafayette to spread a little magic.

Of course, Cinderella encouraged social distancing, and therefore was unable to take pictures and asked kids and their parents to follow safety measures.

"I think it's important to remember that there is light in the darkness," explained Katelyn Guidry (Cinderella). "There's definitely silver linings and beautiful things that are taking place right now if we only look for them. I'm glad to kind of spread some light on that, and just to remind everybody that we're in this together."

The Lafayette Princess is planning on holding more parades in the future - to stay up-to-date on future events, follow their Facebook page here.
