Ready or not: South Mississippi Parades

There are 2 comments on the The South Mississippi Sun Herald story from Jan 12, 2008, titled Ready or not: South Mississippi Parades. In it, The South Mississippi Sun Herald reports that:

Yikes! Mardi Gras is arriving too quickly on the heels of New Year's, so much so that heads spin when South Mississippians learn the first 2008 Carnival parade rolls on Saturday.

The earliest any Mardi Gras can be is Feb. 3 and the latest is March 9.

This year it is Feb. 5, and that shortens the number of parading weekends between Epiphany and Fat Tuesday. In fact, 2008 has such a compressed Carnival season - 31 days in all - that there will be three parades this Saturday, not just the traditional kickoff by the Ocean Springs Elks Lodge that lures 20,000-plus spectators.
