This year's parade will be led by a band from New Orleans and Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory.

A special guest to the parade will be Gobi, the border terrier mix that was rescued by ultra marathon runner Dion Leonard after she began following him during a leg of the Gobi Desert Run in China in 2016.

A book, Finiding Gobi, was written by Leonard about the pup's desert run.
