Under 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.
