Order of the Rolling River

Geographically, between Dauphin Island and downtown Mobile, there's a lot of territory.

Within that area is the Order of the Rolling River, a smallish band of folks established in 1999 and proudly committed to putting on a Mardi Gras parade and ball for their part of the world: south Dauphin Island Parkway.

The Order rolled this year on January 27. The theme was Let's Party. King Willie and Queen Angela led the parade of seven floats, built by the group. Grand Marshal was Athestine Collins, longtime resident of Mon Louis Island.
