If last weekend’s Lucedale Carnival Association parade was a soft opening for South Mississippi’s 2018 Carnival season, then Saturday is opening day with three parades rolling on the Coast and another one rolling on Sunday.

Yep! The Ocean Springs Elks parade and the Pass Christian Carnival Association Krewe of Legacy roll in their respective communities at 1 p.m. Saturday and the Krewe Unique rolls at 2 p.m. Saturday in Ocean Springs.

At 1 p.m. Sunday, the Lizana Carnival association will roll its small-town-charm parade featuring horse-drawn floats, antique cars and horseback riders.

The weekend is sure to get you in the Carnival-season spirit, so check out the list below for times of all the season’s parades and maps of routes for this weekend’s parades.

Get out and have some fun.
