ALL KREWES LARGE AND SMALL, start planning and collecting food now! The 2022 goal is 10 TONS of food for Manna!
Join the Krewe of Sparta Annual Humanitarian Award Food Drive Weigh-In Party at Manna on Sunday, February 20, from 1-5 pm.
When your krewe participates in the Krewe of Sparta Annual Humanitarian Award Food Drive Challenge and donates nonperishable food items at the Krewe of Sparta Annual Humanitarian Award Food Drive Challenge Weigh-In Party at Manna on Sunday, February 20, from 1-5 pm, your krewe is eligible for a discount.
Pensacola Parade People is offering a 10% discount off of anything PURPLE/GREEN/GOLD the Monday-Saturday following the food drive to anyone in any of the participating krewes. The discount will apply to case beads, clothing, stuffed animals, hand-strung beads, big beads, and decorations (anything in the traditional Mardi Gras tri-color scheme). Be sure to ask for the discount at checkout AND either be wearing your krewe-branded gear (hat, shirt, etc.) or already be in PPP’s customer database under your krewe’s name.
Large and Small krewe division winners will be announced at the Pensacola Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday Priscus celebration on Mardi Gras night!
