Dolly Parton honored in Mardi Gras parade

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVLT) During this year's Krewe of Thoth parade in New Orleans East Tennessee's own Dolly Parton was honored with a float. This year's theme was "American Icons."

The Parade rolled through New Orleans on Sunday. The Krewe of Thoth parade takes a unique route through the city, so the parade can pass institutions that serve those with illnesses or disabilities who usually can't see other parades.
