Some Mardi Gras parades canceled due to weather


Grand Marais, Franklin and Loreauville Mardi Gras parades were all canceled because of inclement weather.

"We had the crawfish burner and the pot. We were going to fry a little catfish, a little garfish in a few french fries for the little kids" said Errol Verret, Loreauville resident.

With high hopes for Mardi Gras this year, the kids also had a change of plans because of weather. Katelyn Labit says "We were going to have

a fish fry and then go outside and catch some beads and then the rain came, and the frost came and it got cold so now we can't."

But Errol refused to let it rain on his parade. "We decided because the weather is bad like it is we were going to make a Couvillion, fry a little bit of fish in the house,

which I don't like to do, we're going to do it anyway. We're going to enjoy our Mardi Gras. With or without the parade!"

Angela Tauzin says a cold and wet Mardi Gras is nothing new. "This is where I sat the last year, right here and waited and we had a nice little parade.

We were in rubber boots last year" said Tauzin.

But, Ms. Angela and her family also chose to celebrate the holiday, just without the beads and floats.

Angela said, "You know what, we're still going to party because I'm cooking gumbo right now!"
