Preparing for parades in Biloxi
Over the next week, the City of Biloxi is working to prepare their residents for the upcoming Mardi Gras festivities.
The city hosts several events and balls and the Gulf Coast Carnival Association and the Krewe of Neptune throw two of the biggest parades on the Coast each year.
Both parades make their way through different portions of Highway 90 and downtown Biloxi so the city will be distributing pamphlets at various businesses to get parade related information to tourists and newcomers. “We have a lot of tourists and a lot of folks that aren’t from here and a lot of folks coming down for the parade that may not be familiar with our ordinances and the things we expect here. The things that they can expect during the parade so we thought it would be a good idea to get a few of those things out to people. On the back of the card there is actually a map of where those two parades will go. View those maps because the two parade routes are different. They go different routes and a lot of people don’t know that.”
The Carnival Association Parade starts at 1 p.m. on Fat Tuesday and the Krewe of Neptune will roll through on February 10th at 5:30 p.m. You can catch the live broadcast of the Krewe of Neptune parade on WXXV.
