Bring on the beads! The Carnival Season has arrived in style and that means a new selection of goodies. Of course everyone has their favorites; from the sports beads to the multi-colored variety, there is something to please everyone.
"We have krewes now coming from Texas, north Louisiana, Mississippi" says Michelle Domingue of Beads Galore in Lafayette.
Vicki Pellerin of the Krewe de Fou says she has a tried and true technique for catching only the best beads, "Push and shove," she laughs.
Snagging a great catch is the best part of the parade, just be sure to stay vigilant along the routes because sometimes rogue beads can cause minor injuries…. And hey, "Throw me something mista!"
