It's not as big as New Orleans but St. Marys and Camden County know how to throw a fun mardi gras festival and parade. Set along the riverfront in downtown St. Marys, the festival is family-oriented and a big tourist draw. Folks along the parade route were very nice to talk to, and many of them wore festive attire.
