Mardi Gras 2014: Children's Parade, Lighted Boat Parade, Taste de Louisiane

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for Nightcast.

The rains held off for all of Sunday's Mardi Gras festivities. The main attraction today was the Children's Parade. KPLC's Haley Rush has the sights and sounds from the streets and floats.

Plus, the Lighted Boat Parade didn't disappoint. We'll take you to the Lake Charles Lakefront, where hundreds cheered as boats decked out in sparkly lights made their way along the sea wall.

And, KPLC's Monica Grimaldo was eating good this afternoon at the Taste de Louisiane. She along with locals and out of towners sampled some of the tastiest Cajun cuisine.

We have two more days of partying and everyone is watching the forecast. Meteorologist Zack Fradella will tell us what we can expect.

The McNeese Baseball team knocked it out of the park against Valpo yesterday… could they do it again? Rebecca Cade is on the Sports desk tonight as the Cowboys wrap up their third game of the weekend.

We'll see you tonight for these stories and more. Nightcast will start around 10:08 due to a programming change. Until then, we're always on at
