Despite earlier reports to the contrary, the Orange Grove Carnival Association parade will not roll Saturday, and there will be no Orange Grove Carnival Association parade this year.

Members disbanded the organization after last year’s parade because of low participation.

Previous parade schedules in the Sun Herald’s print and online editions and elsewhere said the Orange Grove parade would roll Saturday, but those reports were in error. The first Mississippi Gulf Coast parades will roll Feb. 11.

While the Orange Grove parade has disbanded, at least one new parade has been added to the Coast lineup this year: Barkloxi will roll in Biloxi on Feb. 19.

Here is a list of all the parades we could find and verify. If you know of others, email living@sunherald.com with details and contact info to let us know.
