More than 100,000 watch MOT parade

Mardi Gras Parade

Mobile Police estimate 106,432 people filled downtown Mobile to watch the Mystics of Time parade Saturday night.

The Mystics of Time, or the MOTs as they are sometimes called, is always a crowd pleaser with their dragon floats that blow fiery smoke along the parade route.

Police responded to 37 complaints and made six misdemeanors and one felony arrest.

They also issued citations to nine people who crossed the barricades, along with 14 vehicles towed and 31 parking violation tickets given out.
