By Patrice Clark – bio | email

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - The Saints mania continued in Pascagoula Friday.  Dozens of passionate fans cheered in the streets with their black and gold.  Business owners held huge Who Dat parties to celebrate the Saints' Super Bowl debut.

Saints fever was especially contagious on Market Street.  Senior citizens were out there sporting black and gold and waving homemade Saints signs to show their support.

"We are so proud of them," Ilka Robertson said.

"They just made us have something to be excited about," Molly Robertson said.

That excitement was also felt a block away at a car dealership.  Workers tied Saints' balloons to cars and put flags to represent they're a part of the winning Who Dat Nation.

"I have been waiting for it all my life," Saints fan Bobby Seal said.

No group is more pumped about the game than Community Bank employees and customers.  They turned their lobby area into a dance floor to Second Line and pass a good time.

Loyal Saints fans say they have waited more than 40 years to party like this.  They expect the celebration will continue when the boys in black and gold walk away with a Super Bowl victory.

"I know we are going to win," Janis Langston said. "It is just in God's plan."
