History of Apalachicola Mardi Gras
For many years after the turn of the century (1900's) Apalachicola had a major multi-day city festival called Mardi Gras. This was long before our current Seafood Festival was created. Then, World Wars and a Great Depression intervened and the celebration was lost...until 2004, when Habitat for Humanity in the persons of Don and Pam Ashley began the process of bringing it back.
This year is Year 9, and with your help it will continue to grow and become a multi-day family daytime event with a parade, as it was a hundred years ago.
This new young company strutted its stuff in 1915
