Mardi Gras Parades Maps

Feb. 3, 1 p.m., Krewe of Little Rascals

The annual Krewe of Little Rascals children’s parade, sponsored by the city of Pascagoula, will march at 1 p.m., Feb. 3. The parade takes a slightly different route this year, starting at the green space at the corner of Delmas Avenue and Magnolia. The parade then goes along Delmas to Canty Street, then onto Watts Street and back to the green space at Magnolia and Delmas. Lineup begins at noon.

Participation is open to all children to age 12 with those under 6 accompanied by an adult. Children are encouraged to costume and will walk, ride, skate or be pulled along the route. Awards for first, second and third place, as well as honorable mention, will be given for best costumes and best floats.

The king and queen come from the city’s elementary schools, which alternate the honor of providing the royalty. Teachers from that school submit names from which a king and queen are drawn.

This year’s queen is Destiney Beltran of Martin Bluff Elementary, and this year’s king is Jonathan Shelby of Lake Elementary.
