Destin Commons held its fifth annual Mardi Gras parade and festivities last week with more than 40 floats parading down the main street and more than 2,500 onlookers. Music played throughout the outdoor lifestyle center by Jones & Company.



Charlie Bland, manager of ValleyCrest Landscaping, (pictured) was the parade’s Grand Marshal.



Annette Alvarez, director of marketing said, “Children and families enjoyed a wonderful evening of fun, food and tons of beads as they lined the street from Bass Pro Shops to Belk.”
