The Krewe of Zulu kicks off the Mardi Gras festivities this Fat Tuesday morning. The parade is set to start at 8:00 a.m. with more than 50 floats parading under the theme 'Zulu Salutes Nelson Mandela,' but before they roll, riders have to get on and load up their floats.

Meg Farris is live at the Zulu staging area on Tchoupitoulas with artist Terrance Osborne to talk about some special throws you won't want to miss during Zulu.
