Bolivar Mardi Gras 2012 went off without a hitch – sort of. Due to one of the heaviest rain storms and flooding we’ve had this year, the parade, which was supposed to begin at 11:30am, was first postponed until 12:30pm. As radar proved the rain wasn’t about to stop, the parade was postponed again until 2:30pm. Finally, the skies began to lighten up and the rain stopped. All participants began to gather at Avocet Subdivision, where they were guided to their “spot” in line with the rest of the floats, trucks, golf carts – whatever vehicle was registered. Everyone was dressed up and all floats were brightly decorated to the Mardi Gras theme of “Heros & Villains.” The parade began between 2:30 and 3:00pm, slowly proceeding
We would like to thank all the people that helped make this year’s Mardi Gras Parade possible with the adverse conditions we were having…the constables office and sheriff deputies, the merchants that help as sponsors, all the great participants that stayed with us through a three hour storm delay and all the great people that got the word out about the delay on starting the parade. Thank you all.
