Parade float preparations underway
Cassandra Y. Taylor, Roland Saucedo and Albert Vargas, of the nonprofit Together For a Cause, work to assemble their first ever Mardi Gras float for the 7th Annual Mistick Krewe of Okeanos Parade. The parade starts at noon on Saturday on Belvin Street and will make its way through town, turning onto San Antonio Street and then Martin Luther King Jr. Drive before ending at the juncture of San Antonio and Hopkins.
