Gulf Coast Carnival Association traces its roots back to 1908 and Biloxi's first Mardi Gras parade, which included 17 floats, 150 flambeau carriers, the new 12-piece Herald Newspaper Band, a grand marshal, the mayor and the councilmen. The monarchs were the first King D'Iberville and Queen Ixolib.Â Eight years later, The Biloxi Carnival and Literary Association was incorporated. Its purpose: "to promote the study of literature and particularly Greek mythology; to give an annual carnival and street pageant in the City of Biloxi, Mississippi, by artistic floats representing Greek mythology and historic events."
In 1929, the Biloxi celebration expanded to include other Coast cities, and around 1949 the Biloxi Carnival and Literary Association became the Gulf Coast Carnival Association. Biloxi's Mardi Gras has been celebrated every year except for war and Depression years.Today the Carnival Association continues the tradition begun over 100 years ago, with King D'Iberville and Queen Ixolib reigning overÂ the parade in Biloxi on Fat Tuesday!
Founded in 1981 and patterned after the old-line New Orleans Mardi Gras Krewes, The Krewe of Neptune charter membership consisted of 150 members. With the Krewe selecting the Gulf Coast as its home, it was only befitting to select a name that related to the water, Neptune the roman God of the Sea. Neptune's first parade held on Mardi Gras Day in 1983 on the streets of downtown Biloxi. This parade is unique in the fact that all floats come from Louis Massett & Associates, of New Orleans, and transported to Biloxi. The Krewe of Neptune parade follows immediately after the Gulf Coast Carnival Parade!

While the colors, the decorations, and the costumed characters vary significantly from year to year, the selection and composition of the royal court does not. There are always eight dukes, eight maids, two royal pages, and of course, the king and queen allÂ presented to the public for the first time!Â Don't miss the presentation!Â
