Beads are piled high in the floats, and parade goers are already lining the streets.
"We now how to party for Mardis Gras," say enthusiastic parade goer Clarence Bradford.
For nearly a decade, Bradford and Jesse Crossley have made it a priority to get the best seat for the parade.
"Everybody wants this spot and this is our favorite spot. So we try to be here on time and get it," says Crossley.
Back at the Krewe of Janus, floats are getting their final preps for the carnival themed parade.
"We are carnival this year so expect lots of flamboyant beads and specialty color beads," says Krewe Member Pillip Wheelis.
With six bands and lots beads, Crowds are in for a good time.
"We require 25 gross minimum to throw," says Wheelis.
With 20 floats that's nearly 75 thousand beads.
Long time krewe member, phillip wheelis, says folks need to be safe and patient when trying to get their hands on items thrown from floats.
"We'll try to give out all we can to you. Just wavy and say "throw me something mister." That's the best thing to do," says Wheelis.
The parade kicks off at six pm. Saturday. You can also catch the parade live on KTVE at 7 pm.
This year the Krewe of Janus will be honoring one of their long time members. Don Thompson was killed in last week's plane crash. He would have be riding the "Street Carnival" float. Now, each Krewe float will be decorated with a black and white circle with the letters D and T. There will also be a moment of silence for Thompson during the parade
