Southeast Texas kicks off Mardi Gras
Tom Wright attended the annual Mardi Gras courir and spoke with Tecoo Leger and Stanley Leger, KFDM anchor Bill Leger's wife and father.
Prior to his tragic death in December 2012, Bill Leger relished his involvement with the Mardi Gras of Southeast Texas and enjoyed taking part in the annual 'chicken toss'.
Buttons were made this year in Bill's honor and Tecoo and Stanley Leger attended, knowing how much Bill had enjoyed the event.
