LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL

/SUN HERALD Tom Mallett untangles some beads while helping to stock up his float with enough throws for the Krewe of Gemini’s night parade on Monday, February 15 2010. The parade will roll in downtown Gulfport tonight at 6 p.m.

Today is the big day we’ve been waiting for, Fat Tuesday.

It’s time to hit the streets and “Laissez les bon temps rouler” one last time before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the lenten season.

There’s certainly no shortage of options for good times across the Coast, with parades from Bay St. Louis to Biloxi both rolling at 1 p.m. Tonight, there will be the Krewe of Gemini parade in Gulfport that rolls at 5:30.

Bundle up, hit the streets, grab some goodies, be careful and let the good times roll.

Happy Mardi Gras!
