MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

The good times keep on rolling in the Port City and nearby points.

The Carnival season is underway with several groups rolling in downtown Mobile this weekend.

Saturday afternoon it was the Mobile Mystics kicking things off.

And if you were on the parade route you saw some familiar faces, like FOX10 News' Kati Weis, Sarah Wall, Bri MacNaught, Devan Coffaro and Joe Emer on the FOX10 float.

The theme of this year's parade was "When I Grow Up."

The group has been parading since 1995.

And, if you were on the Eastern Shore Saturday night, you were in for a real treat.

The Knights of Ecor Rouge rolled through the streets of Fairhope.

The parade featured 12 floats with the theme "Popular 80s Video Games."

The group has been parading since 1985.
