The Gulf Coast will officially change from the holiday season to Carnival season on Friday with the celebration of Twelfth Night beginning with a 5 p.m. gathering at the Biloxi Visitors Center, followed by a parade to the Mardi Gras Museum. "The Biloxi Visitors Center is where we began the holiday season, with the lighting of the decorations at the Biloxi Lighthouse," said Visitors Center Manager Bill Raymond, "and this will be where we also will end the holiday season as we usher in the Carnival season." The occasion also serves as a reminder of the religious significance of Carnival, often lost on the tens of thousands of revelers at Mardi Gras parades. Twelfth Night, the 12th day from Christmas, is the night before the Epiphany, the day when the three wise men visited the infant Jesus, foretelling the revelation of God the Son being born as a human. The Twelfth Night gathering, sponsored by the City of Biloxi, Biloxi Mardi Gras Museum, Gulf Coast Carnival Association, and the Krewes of Neptune and Les Cavaliers, will begin at 5 p.m. at the Visitors Center, 1050 Beach Blvd., and at 6 p.m., the reigning leaders of Carnival will be presented to extinguish the Christmas lights at the Biloxi Lighthouse. The entourage will then board a Mardi Gras float and parade to the Mardi Gras Museum at 119 Rue Magnolia, where, at 6:30 p.m., the lights at the Mardi Gras Museum will be illuminated, signaling the beginning of Carnival season.
