Moss Point Cancels Mardi Gras Parade

(Moss Point-AP) -- Don't expect to see any carnival krewes in Moss Point.

The annual Mardi Gras parade is off. City officials say the parade had been scheduled for Saturday.

The cancellation is due in part to a lack of participation and a shortage of recreational employees to handle the task.

Moss Point is currently seeking to fill its recreation director's position, which was vacated in January. The director generally oversees the parade.
