Is it just me, or does Mardi Gras in the Shreveport / Bossier City area get bigger and better every year?  It's just my second year experiencing the parades, bals, beads, and king cakes - but it definitely seems like the excitement is about to hit critical mass!  Since everyone on the Morning Madhouse is still a bit on the Mardi Gras rookie side, we had Captain Brian from the Krewe of Centaur come in and give us a quick lessons on the do and don't of parade etiquette and how to maximize your bead catching.  With the massive amount of parades coming up in 3 three weekends - we hope this information comes in handy for you as well!

*One tip that is not covered in this interview is your K94.5 and/or Morning Madhouse signs.  If you make a huge one, it is almost guaranteed that you will be covered in beads.  It gives the throwers an easy target to hit, and lets everyone know that you have fantastic taste!
