The Greenes encourage Atlanta residents to come out and join the festivities on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Shauna is looking forward to the kick off as “this event exceeded expectations in 2016.” The parade will begin outside of the Greene’s house, located at 88 Kirkwood Rd NE at Bessie Branham Park, and the Mardi Gras party will follow in downtown Kirkwood, on Hosea L. Williams Blvd.
This free event will feature live music and “Mardi-Gras themed menus.”
According to a press release, Lanta Gras is a nonprofit based in Kirkwood to help “build community and opportunities for children through the common bond of music.”
“Our goal is to establish a program offering brass and percussion musical instruction to middle and high school youth within our greater community of 30317: Kirkwood, East Lake, and Edgewood.”
All funds raised by the Lanta Gras parade will go toward supporting Lanta Gras’ mission.
