Held in the heart of downtown Pascagoula, the Jackson County Mardi Gras Parade is one of the largest on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Its 1p.m. start time allows parade goers to bring out the entire family and enjoy this Mississippi event. Homes along the parade route eagerly welcome visitors to pull up a chair and have a perfect viewing location. Visitors to the parade will come away with bags of beads and Mardi Gras Memorabilia.
