The PKCC would like to thank all that participated in the 2020- 23rd Annual PK Mardi Gras Parade and Shrimp Fest.
A big CONGRATULATIONS to the parade winners! Thanks for making this event a a fun time...great sunny weather and a total of 43 parade floats!!
This event was a success because of all the awesome - hard working volunteers, which include cooks, decorating, clean up, parade organization and the sales/service staff. Also, a big THANK YOU those that took the time and energy to entertain us... the creative and crazy parade floats!! You made the day. A SPECIAL thank you to the cooks, set-up and servers - 804 tickets were sold...that's a LOT of shrimp served!
We also want to thank all the parade spectators and the 804 people that purchased shrimp fest tickets. This is a PKCC fund raiser and the net proceeds are used to have other events throughout the year primarily for the children in our community. These events, Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Truck or Treat, Christmas with Santa and the Angel Tree are for the enjoyment of our small community.
PK Mardi Gras event is also our way of kicking off the "lake season" and for local businesses to promote their business in the parade. Also to give our lake guests and community a fun way to enjoy the lake and local businesses...boy, were they busy this year!!!
