HATTIESBURG, Miss. -Residents at the Claiborne celebrated Mardi Gras Monday. The residents made their own Mardi Gras version called the 'Krewe De Lu Claiborne'.

Residents enjoyed music, food, and dancing. “Hey listen being retired at the Claiborne is a luxury, if you haven’t been at the Claiborne you haven’t lived" said Claiborne's Executive Director.
This year's King and Queen voted by the community are King Bill Flathau and Queen Edith Baer.
