Here is some home video footage from Mardi Gras in 1969 in what appears to be downtown Lafayette!

How lucky we are to be able to view this video that someone took with their video camera all the way back in 1969!

For the most part the person seems to be standing in the same spot throughout the video, except for the very beginning as they move around a little bit.

You see people in the streets before the parade comes. Then we see floats passing by along with bands from area high schools. The schools that I could make out include Breaux Bridge High, Comeaux High, Port Barre High, and Carencro High!

Can you make out more high school bands? Did you recognize anyone from the video?
