The Krewe of Kids is celebrating 30 years of Mardi Gras merriment.
This is the only co-ed social group for kids on the Island and is open to fifth graders and younger. Pre-schoolers must have an adult partner. The Kids have a few traditions that stick like glue - creating their custom a hand print banner by putting their entire hand in wet paint; eating doughnuts and cokes at a big time fun breakfast party where they draw names to choose a King and Queen; creation of a secret handshake and cheer; and finally, they march in the Kids and Kritters Parade.
Organizational and sign up meeting: 1 p.m. Beach Church, January 6
Royal Doughnut Breakfast 8 a.m. Beach Church, January 13
Parade 2 pm. Casino Beach parking lot, January 20 (rain date Jan. 21)
Dues: $15 cash, check
