Flat Stanley arrived in Hollywood, Florida in February of 2017 for a nice winter vacation.
Waiting for the parade to begin!
The parade was put on by the Krewe of Denham Springs.
The Mayor Gerard Landry was the Grand Marshall leading the parade.
The parade theme was Pirates of the Cajun Navy.
The Denham Springs High School band marched and performed in the parade.
People drove their unusual or classic cars in the parade.
The people in the parade toss trinkets to the people watching. The things they toss are called "throws". Flat Stanley brought some throws back for everyone to see.
This parade had a lot of Jeeps decorated in the colors of Mardi Gras: purple, gold, and green.
The floats all had a pirate theme.
Other groups, like dance schools, marched and performed in the parade.
These girls are part of the high school's dance team.
The symbol on the front of this truck is a fleur-de-lis. The fleur-de-lis is seen all over Louisiana and is used in home decor, jewelry, dishes, clothing, and other products.
This float looks like one of the boathouses that you see on the rivers in Louisiana.
There were a few really cool ATVs riding in the parade, too.
