About 3 p.m., the Basile Mardi Gras assemble a couple of blocks to the east of the bandstand in downtown Basile where everyone is gathered.  In 2000, at about 3:15 they paraded on foot to the street dance, where they danced, cut up, and also sang the Basile Mardi Gras Song.

It's Mardi Gras on a smaller scale than the celebrations in some other towns, but it's every bit as colorful and exciting.
