Cold weather doesn't stop Eunice Courir de Mardi Gras

Updated:

Inclement weather cut the number of participants in the Eunice Mardi Gras run in half from last year.

According to Pat Frey, captain of the city's Courir de Mardi Gras, 400 participants braved the snow, sleet and freezing rain. Last year he says there were about 800 participants when the weather was a bit warmer.

Though he still say the die hard participants still came to ride.

"The weather has a big factor in the run, but the whole motto with the Eunice Mardi Gras is we have to go." said Frey.
