All anyone could see was green, purple and gold as the Kirkwood neighborhood got a taste of Mardi Gras on Saturday with the first annual LantaGras Parade. The neighborhood came out in force with costumes, bands, floats, music and more as hundreds made their way from Bessie Branham Park to the downtown corridor. People lined the streets to watch and then follow the parade to the end.
