BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Thousands of people flooded downtown of Baton Rouge for the annual Spanish Town Parade.

The parade is well known for being, strange, with political and celebrity humor usually posted on the many floats that roll through downtown. Pink was the color to wear. All that spectators watching over the crowd saw was a sea of pink. People were sporting everything from pink tutus to pink hair.

The parade attracts people from all over including David and Nancy Lewis who just got married, and traveled to Baton Rouge from Texas to enjoy the parade for their honeymoon.

"We are also visiting a friend, but did want to enjoy the festivities," said David Lewis.

One of the most interesting parts of the parade was a line dancing group who were hot on their feet.

"We were born out of a line dancing class at a local gym and we go to outreaches to local nursing homes and dance for them," said Sandy Mcgrew who is a part of the group.

Authorities are looking to see if this was the biggest Spanish Town parade from its start in 1982
