Mystic Krewe of the Seahorse
The revelers were out and about in Bay St. Louis tonight for the Mystic Krewe of the Seahorse parade.
Around 70 golf carts lined the streets of downtown and the Raw Oyster Marching Club put on a show for those in attendance. Donald Rafferty, the parade marshal, says this parade keeps growing larger and larger each year. His daughter, Margaret Cantrell, is the treasurer for the parade and she tells News 25 that if you’re looking for a laid back Mardi Gras parade, this is the one. “It’s fun. It’s laid back. There’s not many rules and no pressure and everyone can be themselves and just have fun. It’s getting bigger every year. We started our first year with 40 units. Now, we’re up to 75 so it’s just going to keep getting bigger. We have 500 members right now, so it’s great,” said Cantrell.
Authorities tell News 25 security for tonight’s parade was heightened in light of the Pass Christian parade shooting.
