A Ritzy and Roaring Good Time

MG_0Under blue skies and a gentle breeze on Saturday, the 27th Annual Lighthouse Krewe Mardi Gras Parade was underway in Crystal Beach. People started lining the highway several hours before the 11:30am start, waiting to hoot and holler and cheer on the parade. Nearly a hundred floats, vehicles, and fire trucks traveled down the highway with revelers all dolled up to the theme “Roaring 20’s and all that Jazz”, throwing beads and candy to the cheering crowds. The parade concluded at Gregory Park, but the swell party continued as everyone relaxed to enjoy the live music of Jerry Diaz and Hannah’s Reef. Krewe President Bobbey White announced the winners of the float judging, then the music played on. A Ritzy and Roaring Good Time was had by all.

    Thanks to everyone who participated! We will certainly take your judging recommendation into consideration for next year, also!

    The crowd was fantastic and the weather was beautiful! Thank you, Crystal Beach Local News” for the coverage and for joining us celebrate Mardi Gras 2017!

    Great parade, but I think that the judges should judge only the floats that adhered to the theme, “… that jazz”. Otherwise what encouragement is given to the people that work so hard to go with the theme.
