Originated in 1703, Mobile is THE birthplace of America’s original Mardi Gras.
Joe Cain brought Mardi Gras back to life after the Civil War by leading an impromptu parade down the streets of Mobile.
And, we’ve been doing it ever since!
Join BreakOut Music & Gospel 900 WGOK for Mardi Gras in Mobile! See YOU on a PARADE ROUTE!
