Possible new parade rules in Gonzales
Parade watchers within the city of Gonzales may have to leave their pets and alcohol at home if they plan to attend this year's Christmas parade.
Mayor Barney Arceneaux says the police department received complaints in years past about parade attendees bringing pit bulls and other large dogs, and some snakes, to the parade. Arceneaux said alcohol-related disturbances along the route also kept officers busy.
The city council will consider two new ordinances at its Oct. 12 meeting.
