Krewe Unique turning 20


It is carnival season and soon enough we’ll be letting the good times roll with all of the Coastal Mardi Gras parades.

This year, the Ocean Springs Krewe Unique will be celebrating their 20th year as a krewe with a Roaring 20’s theme.

They also have a new grand marshal for their parade this year: former Ocean Springs alderman and Mississippi Coast Coliseum Executive Director Matt McDonnell. Krewe Unique Captain Greg Gipson said, “You can expect some t-shirts with ‘Krewe Unique 20 year anniversary.’ You can expect some coconuts. You can expect a lot of MoonPies, nice trinkets, beads, and everything. It will be a family event and we have a four dynamic high school bands that will participate. So, we are excited.”

Krewe Unique will roll down the streets of Ocean Springs starting at 2 p.m. on February 8th on Front Beach Drive.
