Mardi Gras Boat Parade held in Atchafayala Basin

HENDERSON – What started out as a bunch of friends taking a boat ride to the Mardi Gras celebrations in Butte La Rose has become a yearly event raising money for the Children‘s Miracle Network. After the Butte LaRose Mardi Gras celebrations were cancelled, the group of friends continued the tradition of getting together the Saturday before Mardi Gras. Thirteen boats gathered this past Saturday at the Atchafayala Basin Landing and rode to Butte LaRose throwing beads to campers along the way. Theresa and Cindy opened their homes and camps to the boaters, making for a fun time in the Basin.
