There was a Mario sighting this weekend, but it wasn’t on Rainbow Road.

Neighbors spotted a real-life Mario racing down McCommas on a go kart. His travel companion was not Princess Peach or Luigi but a white cockatoo.

Cyclists, walkers and joggers are often spotted in our neighborhood, especially on sunny days like we had this weekend, breaking up periods of constant rain. But rarely is a beloved Nintendo character seen cruising around East Dallas.

If you’re Mario, let us know. We have a few questions for you.
