Bringing a Lundi Gras celebration back to Bay

There are a number of Mardi Gras celebrations over the next week, but Bay St. Louis native Pilar Fredrick has come up with an original idea which will be unique to Hancock County.
Fredrick and others will be putting on a Lundi Gras Masquerade celebration on Feb. 11 to help celebrate Mardi Gras' eve, and hopefully raise money for charity.
"There has never really been an event for Lundi Gras on the Gulf Coast," Fredrick said.
"This is going to be a fun event for the entire community and hopefully, it can start a tradition."
Fredrick created the event last year and it was a mild success.
This year, she said, she is hoping for an even bigger turnout.
The event will be held at the Bay St. Louis American Legion hall on Blue Meadow Road on Feb 11 from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m.
There will be a DJ, cash bar, and possibly a second line band, she said. Admission is $10.
Fredrick said a portion of the profits will be donated to a local charity, which will be decided upon at the party.
Fredrick said the event is open to anyone in the community, but it will be an adults only party.
"We are looking to have some good adult fun," she said.
"I think this event will help everyone get into the Mardi Gras spirit for Tuesday.
“We want people to know that they do not have to go out of town to enjoy Lundi Gras."
