On your mark. Get set! This year's Mardi Pardi on Saturday, Feb. 9, is a 5K / 10K run through downtown Bay St. Louis and along the beach road.
Sizzling New Orleans music, great local food and beer, one-of-a-kind first-place trophies, runners' Mardi Gras costume contest and more round out the weekend in the Bay, which also includes the Second Saturday Artwalk. Featured bands are Star & Micey and New Orleans legend Irene Sage. All events take place at the Mockingbird Cafe on 2nd St. in Bay St. Louis.
Proceeds from the race benefit the Recycling in the Schools program sponsored by Live Oak Alliance Mississippi in Hancock County.
