Grayhawk subdivision held its first ever Mardi Gras cooking contest and parade on Saturday, Feb. 16 and didn't let a cold, gray day dampen the enthusiasm.

Gluckstadt Fire Department led the parade of beautifully-decorated golf carts, trucks, pets and walkers.

The Madison County Sheriff's Department brought up the rear and kept the parade safe for all.

The afternoon ended with an awards ceremony, King Cake and lots of fellowship.  

Plans are in the making for this to be an even bigger and better event next year.
