GRETNA- Six Mardi Gras krewes have been fined from $100 to $2,500 for violating Jefferson Parish's parade ordinance during Carnival 2013.

According to public records released Tuesday, The Times-Picayune reports most of the infractions involved unmasked riders and smoking on floats, although two krewes were cited for having too few marching bands.

The citations come in the second year of the latest crackdown on Carnival krewes as Jefferson Parish tries to enforce its parade standards.

The parish attorney's office released reports on six of Jefferson's 14 parades, in response to a public records request from The Times-Picayune.
