WLOX Editorial: Be Mardi Gras aware

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Carnival season is in full swing in South Mississippi. We have Mardi Gras balls, parades, all kinds of throws, costumes and all those king cakes.

Thousands upon thousands of people are taking part in the celebration and fun. That's what it's supposed to be. With so many people celebrating at the same time, the chances of an accident or some bad seed temporarily spoiling the fun increase.

As you celebrate, don't forget to be careful, beware of your surroundings and look out for your neighbor whether you're just watching or throwing or catching the purple, green and gold beads.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
