Customers gearing up for first Mardi Gras parade in Ocean Springs

Revelers are gearing up for the first set of parades to roll this Saturday in Ocean Springs. Mardi Gras Outlet has everything to help them let the good times roll.

Coast Mardi Gras Outlet has been supplying the Coast with Mardi Gras essentials for the past decade. Shoppers have been flooding the store buying supplies for parades, floats, Mardi Gras balls, and parties. They offer a lot of bulk items like beads, moon pies, and toys.

Managers say they’ve been preparing for the rush since last April and they’ve already taken a lot of orders from Coast krewes. Coast Mardi Gras Outlet President Leonard Cooper said, “We’re getting geared up for this Saturday. Looks like the weather is going to be nice. The families are coming out, getting their stuff, selling the moon pies and the basic beads, specialty beads, a lot of balls and stuff. People are starting to come out, getting ready for the kickoff this Saturday in Ocean Springs.”

Now that it is peak season, the store is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
