I saved two of my favorite photos of the parade for last. I don’t know why there wasn’t a photo of the Yambilee King and Queen, but they were usually on the last float.
I like this one because it tells a little story of how the Cajuns got to Louisiana. Also, the people on the float are dressed in traditional Acadian costumes.
Can you guess which one of these gowns is my favorite in the below photo? Extra candy if you guess the right one.
Can you also guess why the horsemen/women come at the very end?
Here is a shot of some of the floats lined up before the parade.
I hope you enjoyed the show and caught lots of candy. If you missed the other four parts, you can find them at these links:
I’d like to thank my mom for allowing me to show these photos. Okay, I didn’t ask, but I’m sure she wouldn’t mind.
I have used all but two of the photos she had and am wondering how many there would be if my parents had had digital cameras back then…
