Krewe of Houmas' parade will be led by the Spirit of Louisiana~The Spirit of Louisiana fire truck was donated to the city of New York in response to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The 42,000-pound truck was built by Ferrera Fire Apparatus Co. of Holden, with money raised by Louisiana residents. The fire truck was made to New York specifications and can pump 1,000 gallons of water in one minute. Louisiana later donated two hazardous-material trucks that aid in hazardous spill cleanup operations.
