Thousands packed the streets of downtown Biloxi on Saturday to experience one of the biggest parades on the Coast.
News 25 brought you live coverage of the Biloxi krewe as they paraded through the streets on Saturday night. Actor John Schneider, best known from the ‘Dukes of Hazzard,’ was named grand marshal of the parade.
News 25’s Payton Malone was on the streets for the parade and got to speak with some excited parade-goers. “(how excited are you to be here?) From Johnstown, Pennsylvania, grew up in Biloxi. (So you’re from Biloxi?) We come down every year. (What’s your favorite part of Mardi Gras?) Mardi Gras! Period. (It’s just exciting. Everyone on the Coast is excited, the atmosphere.) My kids grew up down here every year. We’ve been coming down for 50 something years now.”
Next up for the City of Biloxi is the annual Gulf Coast Carnival Association Parade on Fat Tuesday.
