The City of Prattville is proud to honor Meteorologists from WSFA, Alabama News Network, and the Rich Thomas Weather Network on Bluewater Broadcasting as Grand Marshals for the 2023 Mardi Gras Parade on February 4.  These meteorologists were quick to alert the public of the oncoming tornadoes and strong storms that swept through the River Region earlier this month.  They continued coverage and providing vital information throughout the night and into the morning and lent a helping hand with cleanup and recovery. We honor them for their hard work and dedication in keeping our communities safe.  

The Prattville Mardi Gras Parade will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 4.  It will roll out from the corner of 4th and Court Streets by the Autauga County Courthouse through the shops of Downtown and will end at Stanley Jensen Football Stadium.  

Come out and help us celebrate and show your support for our Grand Marshals, the Meteorologists of WSFA, Alabama News Network, and Rich Thomas Weather Network on Bluewater Broadcasting.
