Not only will there be a large duck on the parade hot-spot, but also a large man. It's me. I'll be on an inflatable duck at the Duck Pond.

For the first time in I don't know how many years, I'll be completely free and available during one of the big parades in Shreveport. I can't think of the last time I was able to attend a Mardi Gras parade in Shreveport without being there in some type of work capacity.

Naturally, I've decided to spend this beautiful day floating on a gigantic duck at the Dock Pond. Sure, I might get pneumonia, but I'm sure the pictures and videos will be great so it's totally worth it.

If you get a chance tomorrow during the Krewe of Gemini Parade, please swing by the Dock Pond and say hello!
