Masked revelers on floats, marchers and parade participants respond to the age old cry, "Throw me something, Mister!" by tossing beads, toys and trinkets to the hundreds of thousands of parade-goers.
The parade starts on the corner of Lake Street and Clyde Fant Parkway in downtown Shreveport and progresses south down Clyde Fant to Shreveport-Barksdale Highway and turns west. The parade turns north on East Kings Highway. The parade comes to an end at the corner of East Kings Highway and East Preston Street. There are designated family zones along Clyde Fant Parkway.
