DEQUINCY, LA (KPLC) - DeQuincy Elementary held its Mardi Gras celebration this week.

Each class was a "Krewe" with a Duke and Duchess who participated in a parade. A King and Queen were voted on by the fifth grade students.

Like any good Mardi Gras celebration, there was Louisiana food - red beans and rice - and mini king cakes.

Parents and students played "Gumbo" bingo and there was a dance.
