MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) The Conde Cavaliers kick off Mobile's downtown carnival season Friday with their procession called "Conde's Cocktail Party!"
Each theme float will represent a different cocktail, such as a White Russian, Jungle Juice, even Moonshine.
Thursday afternoon was spent loading their floats with beads and MoonPies and testing a brand new lighting system on one of their signature floats.
Some of the new technology mimics neon, while other parts of the float flashing and pulsate with changing colors.
The Conde's say this is the look of the future for their popular parade.
They kick off the parade from the Mobile Convention Center Friday at 6:30 p.m.
