A little rain (and a big puddle) didn’t dampen the spirits of paradegoers in New Orleans over the big Carnival weekend.

A series of posts on social media showed Mardi Gras revelers constructing a “bead bridge” over some standing water along the Uptown parade route.

“No rain boots? No problem,” Clint Durrett tweeted on Sunday afternoon. 

As seen in Durrett’s tweets, the bridge started small but grew substantially. And, yes, it appeared to serve its purpose: Video and a photo show people using the bead bridge to cross over the water.
