NEW ORLEANS - A float in the Krewe of Pygmalion parade Saturday night hit a tree and delayed the route for half an hour, WWL-TV reports. 

A video posted by WWL-TV showed the float wedged against a low-hanging branch, reportedly at the beginning of the route. A piece of the float also seemingly broke off into the tree. 

The parade was delayed for around 30 minutes before the good times kept rolling. 

The festival fumble came only a day after a confetti cannon on another parade float Friday night went off and hit a transformer, knocking power out for the surrounding neighborhood for roughly 25 minutes.
