Mardi Gras season has officially come to a close. From morning to evening revelers painted the streets of Downtown Mobile with purple, green, and gold. According to Mobile Police, the crowd count for Fat Tuesday 2018 was 143,616 people.
Its been a day full of merriment and fun and folks who came out couldn't be more satisfied. Folks were out in full force tonight at the last parade of the season The Order of the Myths.
The crowds were full. People were pleased with the great weather. The throws were amazing as always. The floats were beautiful. There were plenty of beads to share. The bands sounded great and of course, there was no shortage of moon pies.
Revelers say now that this one's in the books, they're looking forward to next year already. Next year's Mardi Gras day is March 5, 2019.
