ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - They’ll be saying “Let the Good Times Roll” in Ellisville this Saturday night as city merchants host the town’s first Mardi Gras parade.

Organizer Rita Sumrall said the route will start and end along South Front Street. Sumrall said the event will feature floats, motorcycles and antique cars, and she hopes it will be an economic boost for downtown businesses.

“We want to do something for Ellisville, we want to bring things into Ellisville that’s family-oriented events, so you can bring the kids out, have a fantastic time,” said Sumrall.

The parade will start at 6 p.m.
