Get ready to catch some beads on the campus of University of Louisiana Lafayette today.

The Krewe of Roux parade is set to roll at 4 o'clock this afternoon.

The parade will travel down Rex and Hebrard Streets, and anyone is welcome to attend the parade.

There is also another free Mardi Gras event for the university, as the Krewe Of Roux Mardi Gras ball will be held at the Cajundome Convention Center at 8 o'clock tonight.

This event is open to the public.

The University even set up a Mardi Gras playlist.
