It’s Carnival Season in Vicksburg!

Vicksburg loves a good celebration, and there is no better time to celebrate than Carnival.  Like our Gulf Coast neighbors to the south, we Vicksburgers celebrate the season with plenty of food, friends, music, and parades.

Yesterday, the Vicksburg Main Street Program hosted its fourteenth-annual Mardi Gras Parade in downtown Vicksburg, attracting local residents as well as plenty of tourists.  Creative “floats” representing local organizations, government agencies, and businesses rolled down the city’s historic brick streets, as riders threw beads, snacks, and other treats to the crowd.  We even had a special “throw” this year to celebrate one of Vicksburg’s hometown heroes, Malcolm Butler, whose interception helped to seal the recent Super Bowl victory for his New England Patriots:

Wonderful community events like these are just some of the many reasons I’m proud to live and work in such a great city.  Happy Mardi Gras!
