Biloxi police: Tips for parade goers | Events
Mardi Gras season is well underway and Biloxi police want citizens to be prepared.
Biloxi Police Public Information Officer Jackie Rhodes said commuters should expect traffic delays.
“The Gulf Coast Carnival Association’s (GCCA) big parade rolls at 1 p.m. Tuesday, February 12. We will block I-110 southbound at Division Street, as well as, one lane on Highway 90 from Bellman Street to Gill Avenue,” Rhodes explained.
Two-way traffic will be on just one side of Highway 90 for several hours.
During the parade, attendees are not allowed to bring glass containers. No pets will be allowed at the parade either.
“This is a family friendly parade. Please be courteous to others,” Rhodes explained. “If you're not going to the parade avoid downtown Biloxi.”
Last year several people were arrested for fighting, public intoxication, and underage possession of alcohol, underage possession of tobacco, indecent exposure and littering.
There will be trash cans and porta potties throughout the parade route. Parade goers are asked to use those.
