Good times roll at rural Mardi Gras

JEFF DAVIS AND ACADIA PARISHES (KPLC) - Traditional chicken runs in Iowa and Iota make for good times on Mardi Gras.

It's been a tradition for years to make a run for gumbo ingredients, including the chicken.

It's all surrounded by a parade through town with Zydeco music, good food and good fun had by all.
