Westview Health Care Center wasn't going to let the celebration of "Fat Tuesday" pass by without a procession of masked figures and colorful suits parading through the Westview hallways. Parade participants which included residents and volunteers strolled the hallways pulling a decorated float which featured facility mascot miniature Yorkie pups Haley and Buddy; and passed out shiny metallic beads, trinkets and doubloons to residents and family members who staked out territory along the parade route.
The parade route led to the French Quarter Cafe and Dining Room, which was made up of colorful building fascades where everyone assembled for a festival of fun. The Westview Recreation Department hosted the program and followed very popular traditions which included the cutting of the "King's Cake". A plastic baby was inserted inside the King's Cake, and whoever receives the baby in their piece of cake shall be crowned the king or queen of the festival.
Resident Alma Brey participated in the festivities and remarked, "the Recreation Department sure knows how to throw a party. The costumes and decorations were fantastic and the enthusiasm of staff and volunteers made for a great time for all of us."
