Westgate celebrates Mardi gras with annual parade
ESCAMBIA COUNTY -- Mardi Gras celebrations are in full swing across the gulf coast. And today, one local school held its own parade.
Students at Escambia Westgate school watched a line of floats and other fun vehicles.
They got plenty of treats, including beads and moonpies.
Teachers encouraged the students to interact with the people in the parade.
"It's special for our kids to see them and interact with them, because sometimes they say they don't have social skills but they do have socials skills. We consider this socializing with the community."
After the parade, the school held a cake auction to raise money for students' yearbooks.
