Old School Mardi Gras returns to Vinton

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for 7 News at Six.

A big rig overturns causing some delays on Interstate 10 westbound. Only minor injuries were reported but it was a big mess.

Plus, old school Mardi Gras returned to Vinton with a chicken run and gumbo cookoff. We talk to organizers about the origins behind the tradition.

And mini Mardi Gras floats are on display at the Southwest Louisiana Convention and Visitors Bureau. We'll hear from some of the winners behind the glitzy creations.

Also the biggest sporting event of the year is just one day away… we'll have more from New Orleans as the city prepares for the Super Bowl.

And we couldn't ask for better weather. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has your forecast.

We hope you'll join us for all this and much more tonight on 7 News at Six. Remember we're always online at kplctv.com.
