Alumni of the Pride of Acadiana were in formation again today for a special occasion.

Jim Goodman, who directed USL's band during the 1970s and 1980s, marks his 84th birthday next week.

Because of the pandemic, he's been mostly at home for months, and his students didn't want his birthday to pass without some kind of celebration, so they organized a surprise drive-by birthday parade for Goodman today.

We will have more on this story later today on KATC TV3.
