Mardi Gras preparations are beginning for the Krewe of Rio parade as plenty of beads were unpacked and floats are receiving final touches.

KATC got a sneak peek as volunteers met at the Krewe of Rio Float Den Saturday to unload boxes upon boxes of beads, throws, and other items that will be raining down on the crowd at the parade.

The Krewe of Rio parade is scheduled to roll Saturday, February 15 at 6:30 p.m from Downtown Lafayette to Cajun Field.
