“Hoppin’ Through the Decades” was the theme of the Easter parade Saturday presented by the Jackson Lions Club.

Business, community, parish, school leaders and students participated by representing different decades.

The parade traveled through town ending at Centenary State Historic Site, where children participated in an Easter egg hunt.

Jeff Travis, chief of operations for the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections, and his family won first place for their float that was decorated like a giant Easter basket.

East Feliciana High School mascot, Rah Rah the Tiger, presented the Travis family with a $75 gift card for winning best float.

Gift cards presented to first, second and third place floats were donated by Jackson Town Councilman Rafe Stewart.
