Mardi Gras t-shirt sales will continue in Pass Christian
The Pass Christian Mardi Gras Parade is canceled, along with many others on the Coast, but the carnival celebration doesn’t have to end.
The Pass Christian Chamber of Commerce has partnered up with local tattoo artist Ben Rusher to design a Mardi Gras t-shirt.
The vibrant colors represent Pass Christian with accents of wildlife and nature in the area. The white long-sleeve t-shirts are available for pre-order only at mscoastchamber.com. Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce CEO Adele Lyons said, “Certainly some parades and balls are being canceled but that doesn’t mean Mardi Gras Day just goes away. It’ll still be celebrated in a lot of different forms. I’m sure we’ll start seeing king cakes come out. So, it was really important for the Pass Christian Chamber to move forward with Mardi Gras by having a t-shirt. This helps support the small business grants that are given out in that community as well as scholarships to high school students. So, it’s a way of still celebrating Mardi Gras whether you’re at a parade or not.”
The t-shirts are on sale right now for $20 and larger sizes are $24. You can preorder until January 25th and they will be ready for pick up February 4th.
