Three-year-old Lee Fortner, right, grabs a string of beads from kindergartner Courtney Kim during a Mardi Gras parade at First Presbyterian Kindergarten Monday. The kindergartners passed out beads to the smaller children while riding their decorated bicycles in the school cafeteria after rainy weather prevented the parade from moving outdoors. The children topped off the parade by eating King Cake.(Melanie Duncan Thortis The Vicksburg Post)
