If you have plans to celebrate Mardi Gras in Lafayette or the surrounding areas, we have a great way to track them.

In this week's Abby's Apps, we introduce you to the KATC Float Finder page. It's become the go-to source for all the sights, sounds, delays and happenings on the Lafayette Mardi Gras parade route.

Just head over to the KATC Float Finders Facebook page to get started.

There, give us a like and follow to receive updates on when the parades start rolling, when they've stopped, and who's out and about along the route.

To be featured on the Float Finders page, or any KATC social media platform, look for a KATC car or one of our walking float finder participants.

Have your signs showing love to KATC and the Mardi Gras season on hand and our team will take a quick snap and post to the float finders page.

If you haven't made it out to the parade route but want to be sure the parade is still rolling, you can message our Float Finders with questions about the parade or the route.

Be sure to follow KATC on Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram to ensure you don't miss a moment of Mardi Gras coverage.
