Are you out enjoying Mardi Gras? We're out on the parade routes and in the streets, covering the latest and greatest in Lafayette today:

5:25 PM: That's it folks - Happy Mardi Gras!

5:00 PM: Rolling into Cajun Field and looking across at this crazy float. Go BioSilk float! (Is that a dude smoking a cigar?!)


4:23 PM: Cajun Field, here we come!

4:02 PM: If you catch our float, make sure to ask the Planet 105.1 dudes to throw you down a moonpie. (No one really seems to like 'em all that much.)

3:20 PM: You all look so beautiful from up here!

2:45 PM: Wow - there are some HUGE floats in the parade today. Some of the biggest we've ever seen!

2:05 PM: The Independent Parade is getting rolling - keep your eyes out for us!

12:46 PM: It's quite possible KTDY float captain Steve Wiley is the happiest man on Earth today.

11:40 AM: The KTDY float has officially pulled out of our parking lot. Godspeed, float riders!

11:03 AM: The Hokey Pokey epidemic has now completely overtaken the 99.9 KTDY and Townsquare Media Mardi Gras float. Yes, you can do the H.P. while doing a jello shot.

10:59 AM: Anybody who's anybody is doing the Hokey Pokey right now.

10:53 AM: JayCee just got done checking out the Fourth Annual Family-Friendly Mardi Gras. "Best chili dogs in Lafayette," they say. There's one way to prove that for sure. (Check 'em out in Downtown Lafayette across from the Federal Courthouse.)

10:20 AM: A couple gals from Tyler, TX were just telling JayCee out on the parade route why Mardi Gras is their favorite holiday.

Why? "It's the only holiday where you can wear martini glasses as a bra."
