The King Gabriel Parade kicked off a little later than planned in Lafayette rolling on Mardi Gras day at 10:00 pm. Lafayette police said that the delay was due to the late arrival of a few of the parade's floats. After twenty minutes of waiting the parade finally kicked off, making its way through the streets of Lafayette. KATC was LIVE at on E Vermilion Street directly across from Parc Sansouci.

Check out the commentary from Dave Baker during the first half of the parade.
