Heavy rains postpone shrimp festival but allows for fun with unicorn floats

GALVESTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Heavy rain in some areas of Galveston County caused major street flooding Saturday morning, but that did not keep people from having a little bit of fun.

After the storms came to a halt, Eyewitness News caught sight of these mythical creatures being released onto flooded streets.

High water was spotted outside of many homes on 19th Street and some parts of League City.

Due to heavy rainfall, the Galveston Island Shrimp Festival announced it will postpone today's events until tomorrow.
