The rain didn't stop some from having fun from having fun last weekend in Scott, Louisiana for their annual Mardi Gras parade.

Unfortunately, the Scott Mardi Gras parade was a soaker and the rain never really let up while floats were rolling, however, that did not deter some from catching the beads they hoped for.

One young man, along with a few other friends, was spotted by Mr. Weatherall in the median that runs parallel to I-10.

As beads were being tossed from the float, the man in the brown short dove for the beads, and that meant submerging himself in the standing water. But hey, it's Mardi Gras, so why not?

The video, which Mr. Weatherall has posted to his Instagram account, has gone viral and so many people are applauding this young man for his enthusiasm last weekend.

I too was at the parade and I am saluting all who attended because the conditions were not ideal for the parade. Still, many showed up and they did not let showers put a damper on their fun and experience in Scott.

Here's the viral video of the young man diving into the water, all for a few Mardi Gras beads,

And we too, like so many others, applaud him for having fun and making the most of the situation last weekend.
