The first annual Lake Arthur Mardi Gras Run attracted a nice crowd riding on horseback and in trailers. During a stop about 10:15 a.m., Mardi Gras in traditional costumes danced under a large grove of oaks, and then children chased a guinea. That's Capitaine Bennett Scott in the colorful yellow, green, and red costume below. Tina Pilione on fiddle and Jesse Legé on accordion with the Lake Charles Ramblers are shown on the music wagon. The morning weather was windy with clouds, building up to showers in the afternoon.
