Fat Tuesday: Closer by the day

More and more news is coming out about Mardi Gras 2020.

The Krewe of Neptune, which rolls Saturday evening, has announced the Ying Yang twins, yes, those of “get Kronk” fame, will be parade grand marshals, and Gulf Coast Carnival Association has begun its preliminary court announcements.

Fat Tuesday, of course, is Feb. 25, less than a week away, but two parades roll in Biloxi on Saturday: the Secondliners at noon and Neptune at 5:30. GCCA rolls Mardi Gras Day at 1 p.m.
