Children’s walking parade planned for Feb. 21

Children ages 12 and younger are invited to participate in the annual children’s Mardi Gras walking parade, which takes place Saturday, Feb. 21 at 1 p.m. on downtown Biloxi.

This non-motorized parade — bikes, skates, skateboards, scooters and wagons — is sponsored by the City of Biloxi, the Mardi Gras Museum, and Gulf Coast Carnival Association.

Children are encouraged to be creative and dress in costumes and decorate their bikes or wagons. The theme for this year’s parade will be “Islands around the World.”

Costumes and floats will be judged according to the theme. This will give the children the opportunity to use their imagination and express what Mardi Gras means to them.
