MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Before the concert -- the Conde Cavaliers — kicked off the Port City’s first parade season. Getting the good times rolling -- they had the port city screaming!!!

“Honestly, I love the energy... I love how happy everyone is and we can come out here and wave and just have a good time,” said one woman.

Lucky for this crowd — these masked gents like to throw!!!

“I know a guy riding in this parade -- so he’s always hitting me with a bunch of stuff. Lee: That’s a good thing! Man: That’s a real good thing!”

“Lee: The weather is a little chilly but not too bad. -- Woman: Love it. I love it. I love the cool weather!”

The start of the season -- also a good excuse to dress up!

“Well... I mean I had a mohawk -- so I thought it would be cool to put lights in it. I like doing crazy make up and hair -- so it worked out,” said one young lady.

The return of the music… the floats… and the party celebrates what Mobile is known for -- the birthplace of Mardi Gras!

“I’m just spending time with family and having a great time,” said one woman.

“Woman: I love the Moonpies -- everything -- all the people -- the happiness -- everything. Lee: You can’t beat Mobile’s Mardi Gras? -- Woman: No you can’t!”

Take it all in —we have about three more weeks of this — Fat Tuesday is February 21st.
