Saturday, people watched a parade featuring more than 100 floats.

Many caught beads, ate New Orleans style food and enjoyed Mardi Gras activities. Some are even considering being a part of the parade next year.

"I wanna participate with the community,” said Axel Felicinano. “That's why we moved to Panama City Beach to be part of the community so we wanna participate in the parade next year. For now, we're gonna enjoy watching it and pick up some beads."

The two-day event ended tonight with a fireworks show Saturday night.
