Yes, today is Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras and there are two more parades scheduled for today. The Hot Rods and Motorcycles Parade has been moved up to 1p.m. The Krewe of Krewes Parade will roll at 5p.m. Have fun, be safe, and catch a bunch of beads. Again, it's my pleasure and honor to have been chosen as the Grand Marshall for the Krewe of Krewes Parade so be watching for me leading the parade. Happy Mardi Gras everyone.
