MOSS POINT -- Lovie McMillan had a funeral to attend Saturday, but she changed clothes and made it back in time to see the Mardi Gras parade roll down Main Street on Saturday afternoon.
She parked at Custom Liners, her son's business, and watched mostly from her car. McMillan, 74, said it was worth the effort. She said she likes to support the city's events.
The Parade of Classes Association, a group of Moss Point High alumni who serve the community, sponsored the parade that had 25 units under Grand Marshal Pam Singleton.
It is a parade that's making a comeback. said Stephanie Hill, Association member. They put it on so Moss Point will have its own Mardi Gras parade.
"We just want the community to support it," she said.
Families lined both sides of the street and children threw beads from cars and trucks as the school system's marching band and Tigerettes performed.
Moss Point Deputy Police Chief Art McClung estimated the crowd at 400.
