Beads And Rain Fall On Revelers During Argus

The neutral ground on Bonnabel, from Veterans Blvd to I-10, is usually packed on Mardi Gras day.  This year, it was just crowded.

Rain sent some people scampering home, but most stuck it out.

Local businessman Ray Brandt reigned as Argus 29.  He brought his grandchildren along for the ride.

“These two are the love of my life. They had to be up there with me,” Brandt told WGNO’s Ed Daniels.

There were two noticeable absences from the parade:  the Copeland’s boats and the Budweiser Clydesdales that were a late scatch due to concerns they would slip and fall in the wet weather.
