The Jackson County Carnival Association rolls 63 floats deep this year. They've also got a new addition--The Purina Cat Food Float. The pet food company is coming down with an awesome float built especially for the parade. In addition, the Pascagoula High School Band will be setting the mood with great music. Cross your fingers organizers tell me for the past two years they've had to postpone the parade because of rain. Come out early to tailgate along the two mile route, but please be mindful: don't liter, no animals and stay behind the barricades.
