The expected rain never arrived and thousands of fun-seekers "passed a really good time" at the 2009 Lake Arthur Mardi Gras Parade and Run held Saturday, February 14, 2009 in and around the Town of Lake Arthur.

Revelers showed up early in the morning to partake in the festivities, and all were treated to plenty of good food, drink, and music in this family-oriented event.

Costumed people of all ages lined the streets for the colorful Lake Arthur Mardi Gras Parade, and many others chose to ride floats, four-wheelers, or horses during the festivities.

A large, well-behaved crowd comprised of people of all ages made for another successful Mardi Gras in the Town of Lake Arthur for the year 2009!
