Stone Mountain, GA — The good times rolled once again on Main Street during the second annual Stone Mountain Village Mardi Gras Parade and block party on Saturday, Feb. 26. The city’s inaugural parade was held in 2020 just before the COVID-19 pandemic locked things down.

According to SMV Mardi Gras Volunteer Organizer Carmen Malizia, there were more than 500 parade participants. Live music in the Municipal Parking Lot kept the party going all day.
