The Rockaway Times
Broad Channel Celebrates Mardi Gras!
By Dan Guarino
Threat of a storm? It takes
more than that to stop the
Broad Channel Mardi Gras.
As skies finally cleared on La-
bor Day, pirates on scooters,
sea creatures, Pokémon Go
characters, little rascals and
wild raisins cavorted through
Broad Channel in celebration
of Mardi Gras 2016.
The parademarched through
town and ended at the BCAC
Memorial Field where partici-
pants enjoyed hot dogs, ham-
burgers and cold drinks. And
at the many BC neighborhood
Mardi Gras gatherings, house
parties and barbecues that fol-
lowed, no doubt many were
hatching plans for Mardi Gras
2017!
