Deadwood is getting in the Mardi Gras spirit, and that includes preparations for the Annual Mardi Gras Parade.
The finishing touches were put on the floats Friday. Besides the parade, people are also getting ready for Friday's festivities, which include a costume stroll, a costume contest, and the crowning of the king and queen.
This year there are 22 floats, and it takes hours to create them.
"The king and queen's float which is a snow goose this year,I probably put in over 60 hours worth of time in it. I know the Saloon Number 10 puts in weeks of work on their float. So a lot of people put a lot of time into this and we're really excited," said Sarah Anderson, Event Coordinator for Deadwood Chamber of Commerce.
Deadwood's Annual Mardi Gras Parade will start at 7 pm on Saturday, March 1.
