Crowley Mardi Gras welcomes visitors

Posted: Updated:

In Crowley, a slight downpour and a long train which delayed the start of the parade, did not stop those in Crowley from enjoying Mardi Gras. 

People from near and far came to Crowley to celebrate Mardi Gras in what they say is a unique way.

"We're from Houston, Texas so it's different, it isn't anything like Louisiana," Coleman said.

Along with the visitors came live music, a dance floor, and fun Mardi Gras outfits to go along with it.

The little fans said along with the rides, their favorite part was catching all the necklaces from the floats. 

Wile the parades and rides may have been the main attraction, revelers said Mardi Gras is more than just a celebration. 

"Coming to Mardi Gras, they have fun rides but it isn't really about that, it's about being with family and friends and all the other things," Royer said.
