Long Beach rolls with Jeep-A-Gras on Saturday

Jeep junkies on the Coast got a taste of what’s to come from the Carnival Association’s inaugural Jeep-A-Gras in Long Beach.

CALB partnered with the city to register about 135 Jeeps from in and out of state for the Jeeps-only parade.

The parade rolled at 6 p.m. Saturday night, starting in the Long Beach High School parking lot and ending on Jeff Davis Avenue and Fifth Street.

The city was hoping for a good turnout so they could turn the parade into an annual event.

CALB President Jason Green said it was a hit.

“Luckily, with the culture we have, the communities cater to the Jeepers because they are like social groups,” Green said. “There are Jeeping communities, Jeeping groups. They travel together, they’re very supportive, they’re very charitable.”

The Carnival Association of Long Beach’s annual Mardi Gras parade will roll at 6 p.m. February 19.
