Sioux City Celebrates Mardi Gras with Big Parade

Downtown Sioux City was taken over by the Big Parade Friday night.

Hundreds of spectators lined 4th Street from Pearl Street to Iowa Street to see all the entries in the Mardi Gras themed parade.

Each entry had a little bit flair, whether in decorations, costumes, or throwing out beads and candy.

Cajun style food and a show also could be found at the Convention Center.

The night was capped off with a live performance by a Zydeco band and fireworks.
