Mardi Gras Group Hosts Easter Celebration

One group decided to continue the holy Easter celebration by having a little fun in the park. The Second Liners Mardi Gras Club sponsored its second annnual Easter Extravaganza in Biloxi's Henry Beck Park.

The fun included music, food, liturgical dancing, and even a hoola hoop contest for all ages. Club members say since they didn't get a chance to have their annual Mardi Gras block party this year, they wanted to do something special for the community.

Event Coordinator Bertha Sherrod says, "We know we all went through a lot in trying to get our houses and lives back together, but we wanted to do this for the people just to show them that we care because this is about God, our families."
