I wanted to take just a minute to remind everyone of the Mardi Gras parade in downtown Wetumpka this Saturday beginning at noon. Last year the crowd was several people deep along the route as the beads and Moon Pies flew. Show up early and stake out your spot as the crowds this year promise to be even bigger than last. There will be floats, costumes, music, and beads and Moon Pies galore!
Keep in mind that this isn’t New Orleans and this Mardi Gras parade is fun for the whole family. My kids had a blast last year and have been looking forward to this year’s parade for weeks now. Shannon Fontaine and the Krewe of Toulouse have done a great job organizing and putting on this great event right here in Wetumpka. Come downtown and have a great time with the rest of the city this Saturday beginning at noon! You’ll be glad you did!
Thad, I agree with your third grader, it would have been a beautiful day for a parade. I know hindsight is 20/20, but come on now, I think the parade could have been re-scheduled for later in the day. Parade participants spent money and time on the parade and it didn't take place and won't take place. In this economy, will people be willing to go to the expense to participate again?
Good question! Maybe not!
