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 will roll this year on Saturday, February 15 at 2 p.m. The theme will be Remember When, to celebrate the group's 15th anniversary. Grand Marshal David Sheffield, owner of Dave's Dog River Seafood, will join King Les and Queen Kim in the parade. Expect six to eight floats, built by the group.
