Norris Day bicycle parade

Above: Asher and Olivia Arceneaux, and Mia Ortega had their modes of transport decked out in red, white, and blue for the Norris Day bicycle parade last Wednesday. Below: One of the more popular events at Norris Day is the “duck race,” where plastic ducks are let loose for a race to the watermelon swimming pool. Whoever purchases the duck with a winning number wins a watermelon. Last Wednesdy’s duck race had a slight hitch in the beginning — the ducks were only making it halfway down the sluice.
