Photos from the 3rd Annual Mardi Gras parade held in Historic Apalachicola

Photos from the 3rd Annual Mardi Gras parade held January 31, in the Historic City of Apalacicola.  The parade and a Mardi Gras ball both are sponsored by the Franklin County Habitat for Humanity as a fundraiser to aid in their efforts to eliminate poverty housing from Franklin County, Florida and to make decent, affordable shelter for all people a matter of conscience. 

Habitat for humanity provides home ownership opportunities for low-income families. Working under the faith-based principle that no profit should be gained from assisting those in need, Habitat for Humanity charges no interest on the homes that it builds and the selected family  pays more affordable monthly payments.
