Parade goers in Morgan City waited through the rain to catch their share of beads from someone who knows how to "Choot 'em".
This year, "Swamp People" cast member Troy Landry served as grand marshal of the Krewe of Hephaestus parade.
"Man, this little rain ain't going to stop nothing," Landry said.
Landry talked to people along the parade route and threw beads.
Phillip Price came all the way from Texas to get a glimpse of Landry, and catch his share of beads. "We had a great time. Everybody is still having fun. A little rains isn't going to stop the party around here," Price said.
The good times rolled on as brave parade goers waited along the parade route.
Courtney King and her friends found a spot under a bridge along the route to beat the rain. "This is Mardi Gras, we wouldn't miss it for the world. We came here since the parade in Franklin was cancelled," King added.
Revelers say they will party throughout the night, ending Mardi Gras 2014 on a good note.
