Peyton Manning made a Mardi Gras parade appearance during the weekend.

In a video posted to Instagram, the retired NFL quarterback could be seen on the sidewalk side near the corner of St. Charles Avenue and First Street catching a miniature football from a Krewe of Iris parade float and throwing it back.

“Just a little throw and catch with Peyton Manning at Mardi Gras,” read the caption on a video posted to an account with the username of vincent_borrello.

Among the hashtags on the post was #Iris2019.

Before catching the pass, Manning stood behind a ladder on which two children sat, including one who wore Archie Manning’s No. 8 jersey from when he played for the New Orleans Saints.
