HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Thousands of Pine Belt residents donned purple, green and gold Saturday to celebrate Mardi Gras a little early in Hattiesburg.  

The 6th annual Caerus Mardi Gras Parade rolled down Hardy Street at 11 a.m.

About 45 floats from different organizations participated.

A New Orleans-style band led the way and there were plenty of beads thrown to onlookers.
