Gator 99.5 was live on location for all your Mardi Gras festivities. Our first day started off very cold and windy. We didn't have the generator hooked up yet, so most of our show was in the RV bundled up. The next thing we knew this strange ball of light came out of the sky. Mike said is that the sun? It sure was the sun, the most beautiful ball of welcomed light we have ever seen.

Today is the Merchant Parade which will start at 7 pm. We will be lined up and ready to go at 5 pm. The parade will start from Pine to Ryan Street and roll all the way down Ryan to Sale. Mike Soileau is the Grand Marshall of the parade. He will be the first one to start the parade in a white GMC Sierra 2500 courtesy of All Star Buick GMC and then Your Buddy Russ and Kassie will be right behind in the Buddy Russ Bus courtesy of Luxury Limo. After the Merchants Parade you can find us back at the Good Times Gator RV courtesy of Good Times RV in DeRidder. Buddy Russ will be the DJ with music and free food so, come meet us for all the fun.

P.S. we had a very special guest stop by this morning, so make sure to look closely for who it may be!

Here is a few pictures of our first day.
