Dauphin Island Mardi Gras parade Saturday
Dauphin Island's Krewe de la Dauphine will present its Mardi Gras parade Saturday with the theme "What I Want to Be When I Grow Up."
The group has designed nine floats celebrating several admirable and not-so-admirable vocations -- beach bum, pirate, firefighter, flight attendant and shrimper, among others.
The krewe put the parade together despite the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on the island Aug. 29. Three families among the krewe lost their homes, said Jake Simms, one of the krewe's parade organizers.
