Not sure if you saw our banner go up in Harmony Park yesterday, but things are getting real for us at Mead Rd. Mardi Gras. Our parade is on Saturday Feb. 25 at 1p this year.We have a couple of changes this year:1) We have a longer parade route! (please see map below)
2) Krewe’s can register online to participate – https://decatureducationfoundation.org/mardigras/As you know, we’re a walking parade and anyone is welcome to form a Krewe and comemarch with us. In fact, the more the merrier. Our only rule is we don’t have cars in or trucks in the parade. But people can ride bikes, scooters or skateboards. Or they can organize creative dance teams… As long as it doesn’t have a motor, it’s good to go!3) You can also pre-pay for food and beer online at that same link – ttps://decatureducationfoundation.org/mardigras/4) We will have a kids area with food, games and facepainting at Mead Rd. ParkThis past fall the Decatur Education Foundation funded grants were used to buy costumes for the DHS drama program, equipment for the DHS Chorus, choral music arrangments for Renfroe and to start a Euphonium fund for the Renfroe band.Thanks again for all of your support and we hope to see you there!
