On Feb. 10 at 1 p.m., come out to support the Decatur Education Foundation at the Mead Road Mardi Gras Parade.
According to the event website, this fundraiser will include a parade that “winds its way through the Oakhurst Neighborhood and culminates with live music, Cajun cuisine, and kids activities at The Imperial.”

In order to participate, create a “Krewe” with a part of the community or group of friends and register online. The fundraiser asks for $150 from each Krewe, but a Krewe can be as large as Westchester Elementary School or the community Yacht Club.
In addition, the event website stated that “Krewes can also adapt wagons, soap box derby cars, rickshaws or any other type of people powered vehicle into floats” to ride through the parade.
All proceeds from the parade festivities will go to the Decatur Education Foundation grants, which support the arts in Decatur’s schools.
