Mardi Gras Central 2016

Biloxi and the Mississippi Gulf Coast are home to myriad Carnival balls, more than 20 family-oriented parades and dozens of special events to herald the approach of Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday,” the last day of the Carnival season.  Fat Tuesday itself falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.  Here are a host of links to help you enjoy Carnival 2016.
