SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The Krewe of Sobek rolled in with the first parade of Carnival season in Shreveport on Saturday, Jan. 15.

“Down on the Bayou” is this year’s theme. There were several floats at Sobek’s parade, and all of them were throwing beads and candy!

A parade-goer spoke about how it feels for parades to be back again.

”I’m feeling great. Excited, I’m cold. I’m happy to be here, saw my Woodlawn Knights. But we out here having fun with our family and enjoying it,” said Cassandra Brown.
