Krewe Of Gemini Rolls In Gulfport

Thousands of people lined the streets of downtown Gulfport looking for a good time at the 36th annual Krewe of Gemini parade.

The Perkinston marching band kicked it off on the right note, and from there the party had no where to go but up.

"Just want to enjoy Mardi Gras. That's all I wanted to do. Have a good time," said Wayne County resident Grinda Coleman.

The excitement was shared from people near and far.

"We enjoy getting together with family and friends and just come out and just enjoy the Mardi Gras season," said Mitch Tinsley of Gulfport.

"We just come down just to have the best time of our life and we're having it," said Paul Quaite of Batesville, Arkansas.

The parade rolled to the theme of "Star Light, Star Bright", and during Mardi Gras season, everyone can be a star, whether they are loud or bashful, getting carnival trinkets through normal methods or unique.

"I was getting them off the ground," said Trevon of Gulfport.

No matter what type of star you want to be, you can let it shine at Mardi Gras.

And having fun is what the carnival season is all about.

"I love it. It's really exciting. A lot of fun," said Patty Bentley of Oklahoma City.
