In Covington, three groups combined to parade through the downtown area.

The Lions Club along with the Mystic Krewe of Covington and the Krewe of Lyra rolled under cloudy skies and slight rain fall.

This is Lyra’s first year to parade on Mardi Gras; the krewe usually rolls earlier in the season.

Plenty of people showed up for the fun — evenĀ  with the threatening skies — but the crowd was noticeably smaller than in past years.
