Happy Mardi Gras!

Record crowds turned out to celebrate Lundi Gras (Mardi Gras Eve) tonight, in Lafayette. The Queen's Parade started rolling at 6 pm. and shortly after, the downtown party was in full swing. Elaborate floats with costumed revelers and lots of beads made this year's Lundi Gras parade a lot of fun.

And the crowd went crazy for the The Krewe Of Attakapas float which is known for throwing the most beads. After the parade, we headed over to the Blue Moon Saloon where a super Mardi Gras party was already in progress. Balfa Toujours, a popular Cajun band, was rocking the house and the dance floor was filled to capacity with a whole lot of two-stepping going on. Hot is the only way to describe it! Fat Tuesday, coming up next. See ya'll there! Let the good times roll, cher!
