Krewe of Real People

The Krewe of Real People Parade in Hancock County is not the biggest on the Coast, but that doesn’t mean the good times didn’t roll through Bay St. Louis.
As Mardi Gras celebrations rolled across South Mississippi, hundreds gathered in downtown Bay St. Louis to celebrate as the Krewe of Real People: Next Generation’s parade rolled through the streets. While it’s not the biggest parade on the Coast, those who attended all agree Bay St. Louis is the place to be on Fat Tuesday. “Bay St. Louis is like the best place to come and that’s why we came down here, even though it’s not the biggest parade.” “We like the small town atmosphere.”
Some attendees even traveled hundreds of miles to experience the traditions on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. “We are from South Carolina. Bay St. Louis is one of our favorite towns in the whole world and the Mississippi Coast. I wish we would have moved here a long time ago.”
The parade this year was put on by a different krewe after the Krewe of Diamonds disbanded, but it was the traditional afternoon Mardi Gras Parade in downtown Bay St. Louis which meant the traditional throwing of the beads and much more. While some kids get excited about that, others not so much.
Either way, from the sounds and looks of the crowd, the good times were rolling.
