Who we are...


The founders began St. Paul's Carnival Association (SPCA) in 1930 as a means to raise funds for the benefit St. Joseph School and the Sisters of Mercy who taught there. The SPCA's philantrhopic activities have continued year after year, later benefiting the newly established St. Paul Catholic School and today, benefitting St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School.


Association activities include great food and entertainment as well as Drawdowns and Golf Tournaments. The Pass Parade is the biggest and best Mardi Gras parade on the MS Gulf Coast, drawing tens of thousands of revelers each year. The Carnival Association has withstood storms, historical events and many changes, but still endures.
