Check out slideshows from the Root Beard and Mustache Contest and SoMa Mardi Gras Parade

Posted By on Mon, Feb 27, 2017 at 1:26 PM


The throngs descended on South Main Street and Bernice Garden on Saturday for the annual SoMa Mardi Gras Parade and the 5th Annual Root Cafe/Arkansas Times Beard and Mustache Contest. As usual, ace photographer Rett Peek was on the scene to capture handsome portraits of all the contest participants. And our own Brian Chilson was on the scene to grab shots of the rest of the revelry.

St. Michael's Episcopal Church won the parade float contest.
