Calendar of Events

"Carnival on the Coast" Mardi Gras - Mississippi Gulf Coast Style

"Carnival on the Coast" is an exciting season for the young to the old, locals, & visitors! Elaborately decorated floats throw "treasures" (trinkets like beads, stuffed animals, logoed cups, doubloons, food items called "Moon Pies" and more) to eager bystanders! "Throw Me Something Mister" is a familiar phrase yelled out by on lookers to the carnival "Krewes" on the floats as they pass by hoping to "scoop" up some of these exciting items. On the Mississippi Gulf Coast, there are more than 20 parades. The Mardi Gras Season attracts over 450,000 people every year and continues to grow in popularity.

In 1908, the Gulf Coast Carnival Association was the first Krewe to parade on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with 17 floats. Today there are more than 20 parades, a long way from one parade with 17 floats, with each parade having 20 or more floats! In 2005, Hurricane Katrina slowed the celebration, but did not stop the carnival season. The party continued even under adverse conditions with each city holding smaller versions of their parades. With the addition of two new parades in 2009, and in 2011 the Long Beach Carnival Association Parade making its debut as an evening parade, the coast continues "Carnival on the Coast" with the party getting bigger & better every year!

Awarded American Bus Association (ABA) Top 100 Events 2003!
Awarded Southeast Tourism Society (STS) Top 20 Winter Event 2010, 2011 & 2013!

  • 2021 - February 16

Mardi Gras Trivia: The March 9th and February 3rd dates are extra special, because those dates only occur once in a lifetime, each occurring roughly once every 100-150 years. The next date of March 9 is the year 2038. The closest many of us will see the Holiday to that date, in our lifetime, was 2011 when Mardi Gras occurred on March 8th. On the other end of the spectrum, very few of us will see the next February 3 date, which is 2285! February 5th was the earliest this century, which occurred in 2008, the next one that early will be in 2160!

Burnett, looking for an actress to play her sister in a new variety series, attended the event. The rest is television history. "The Carol Burnett Show" premiered in the fall of 1967 and Lawrence starred in the show for 11 years thereafter, earning one Emmy Award and five Emmy nominations.

After the Burnett show ended, Lawrence went on to guest star in numerous hit television series including "Laverne & Shirley," "Love Boat" and "Murder She Wrote." But Lawrence is probably best-known for her TV series, "Mama's Family," which aired from 1983 to 1990. Lawrence also appeared in a recurring role as "Mawmaw Ruthie Stewart" on Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana" and the popular cartoon series "Phineas and Ferb."
