The Foley parade is not city-sponsored, and it's not the production of any one group. It's more a loose confederation of folks in this south Baldwin County town who want to make sure they have their own Mardi Gras down there.
"It's really open to everybody in this area," said organizer Paul Adams. "We have a lot of businesses that participate, as well as just groups of people."
Floats, trucks, antique cars, walking groups, just about anything you've seen in a parade before can be found in Foley. Usually, this parade has more than 25 units, and organizers stress the family friendliness of the whole thing.
This year's parade will be held February 25 at 11 a.m.
