Mardi Gras Comes To Town For East Texas Seniors

Seniors in Longview danced away the day, celebrating Mardi Gras in grand style. It's Highland Pines Nursing Home and Rehabilitation's 7th year to put on the festivities with feathered masks, flashy costumes and beads. The Mardi Gras king gave us his stamp of approval. "It's a very good party. [There is] a lot of good drinks and eats, and a lot of good socializing. Just a lot of fun," says Louie Rogers. With every king there's got to be a queen. This year's Mardi Gras queen was June Knight.
