Bay St. Louis community celebrates at the Mystic Krewe of the Seahorse parade
There was only one Lundi Gras parade that happened on the Gulf Coast tonight.
Families crowded the streets for the Krewe of the Seahorse Lundi Gras parade that rolled through Bay St. Louis.
Instead of the normal passing of traditional floats, riders rode in decorated golf carts to throw beads from.
Along with the beads, krewe members hand crafted and designed seashells to give out.
To keep up with the nautical theme, the king and queen were pirates, who led the parade in the only float which was a pirate ship.
The kid-friendly parade had over 40 golf cars. Individuals were dancing in the street as the Raw Oyster Marching Band passed through. Attendee Deb Morris said, “I’m here for my first Mardi Gras Parade, never been to one before and I’m here to support my sister. She’s with the oyster girls. She’s going to be dancing. She’s got this big costume and glitter. I’m just excited to be here with my family to support my sister.”
Morris said she will be back again next year, but next time with a Mardi Gras shirt or something more festive.
