Ocean Springs Elks Mardi Gras Parade
Touted as the first major parade to roll out carnival season on the Mississippi coast, the Ocean Springs Elks Mardi Gras Parade rolls again! From the humble beginnings of a few cars throwing beads to the children of the lodge – 18 units and attended by a crowd of maybe 1,000 people – today, it ranges from 85 to 100 units and is attended by crowds of over 30,000. The Elks Parade rolls rain or shine. This year’s theme: Just for Laughs.
