Tyler County Celebrates Mardi Gras
Tyler County Booster - March 2009
Tyler County folks like a party, and Relay For Life offered them an opportunity to have some fun, enjoy some good food and help in cancer research Saturday, as the Courthouse Square was transformed into Mardi Gras Central. Despite the windy, cool weather, a good crowd turned out for the event. There were games, music and a parade. A lot of fun for everyone. The celebration also featured a gumbo cookoff, with several Relay For Life Teams competing against each other for Gumbo cooking honors. Money raised during these events goes to finance continued research in the fight to find a cure for cancer.
