Ponchos and umbrellas were a common theme along many parade routes, including the Lafayette Mardi Gras Festival Parade.

Come rain or shine the show must go on and for those in the Lafayette Mardi Gras Festival Parade, it went on without a hitch.

"It is raining out here and slippery so everyone be safe, come out and have the best time that you can." saud King Toussaint L'Ouverture LVI Rollan Moore.

The parade featured over a dozen floats, marching bands and one high spirited royal princess, who said her favorite part of today is the people.

"Seeing everybody and seeing how happy they are when they see costumes and enjoy that you came out." said Royal Princess Krystian Broussard.

For those partying along the route ponchos, umbrellas and heaters kept there spirits warm. And after its all said and done, a different group of revelers roll through.

"Because of the weather we are trying to clean up everything as quick as possible. It has to get up, that's why we are putting fourth all this extra effort. We do it rain or shine we are like the post office." said Deshaun Wilson.
