All racers will receive a long-sleeved t-shirt and may attend a post-Classic social that will include food and beverages for participants.

The parade, The Magic Carnival Associations 25th annual, will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, and racers are encouraged to stay for the largest parade north of Lake Ponchartrain and the largest Mardi Gras event in the world for a city under 15,000 population.
