BATON ROUGE - The start time of tomorrow's Spanish Town Mardi Gras Parade has been pushed back from noon.

Parade organizers said they are now scheduled to roll at 4 p.m.

Bruce Childers, a parade organizer, said the city and police gave them a window to start between 3:30 and 4 p.m., and that they plan to roll at 4.

News 2 Chief Forecaster Pat Shingleton said the time change is due to heavy rain that is predicted for noon tomorrow.
