  1. are there other local parades in the area? We are meeting in PCB. my son and his family (4 kids) from Jacksonville and my mom, sister and husband from Wisconsin. My grandkids want to experience a Gulf Coast Mardi Gras parade. I hear you have a nice one. Your beach looks spectacular. I have only seen N.O. and Baldwin County AL parades and only know Orange Beach and Gulf Shores area. Will we be converted Snow Birds?

  2. I am only aware to the 2 parades this year.

    My guess is that once you get to Panama City Beach you will not want to leave!
