A Mardi Gras for the kids

Mardi Gras is to be the theme of Cousland Children’s Gala Day this year.

Local samba and funk band Kaboodle, will lead the children on a march on Saturday, June 16, to kick off the day’s festivities.

Those taking part in the parade will carry hand decorated umbrellas which are inspired by the famous New Orleans festival.
