NEW ROADS, LA (WAFB) -

A thin, but enthusiastic crowd gathered in New Roads for the 71st Lions Club Parade as well as the Community Center Parade.

Revelers said they had never seen such a vicious combination of cold and rain at the same time.

Only one marching band made the trip and it was a Madison Parish school from Tallulah.
