Hi, Joey,

Ed might have it. If not, it will probably turn up sooner or later. Could you remind us of what the parade music was like?

When was the Mardi Gras parade first introduced? And wasn't on of the original themed areas taken out for a Mardi Gras theme?

The Gurnee park took out about half of Orleans Place (where CC, Edge, Roaring Rapids are/were) and made it into a Mardi Gras section. They also added 4 new rides in that section.
