This past weekend we got to enjoy ourselves at the Krewe of Kids parade. The Krewe of Kids is mainly for children who live on the beach, and it’s a great way for them to participate in the Mardi Gras festivities. They have their own special breakfast and later their own parade!
This year the parade theme was Out of This World, so we made a jet pack for Little Miss. My husband came up with the idea, and I loved it! If you have two soda bottles, some duct tape, and some silver spray paint, it’s pretty easy to make one yourself!
We weren’t sure what to expect from the parade, but we had a great time! There was even a horse in the parade! Children got to go on the route and throw beads. We (my husband and I) even got to walk along the parade route too. At the end there were great treats for all of the children (and the pets that were there too!)
This coming up weekend we get to watch a parade – the Krewe of Wrecks Pensacola Beach parade. It’s always a great time, and I know Little Miss will have fun! Of course, now she wants to actually be in the parade since she had so much fun last weekend.
Wishing you a happy Mardi Gras!
