Forest Haven celebrates Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is a uniquely Louisiana thing. Getting into the spirit, the residents at Forest Haven Nursing & Rehabilitation Center celebrated with a unique parade. Helping the residents enjoy Fat Tuesday, representatives of organizations such as the Jackson Parish Hospital and other well-wishers adorned themselves in costume and parade regalia and lined the parking lot of the facility located at 171 Thrasher Drive in Jonesboro.

Forest Haven residents and family members then looped the parking lot in their wheelchairs and other means of creative transportation where they received all kinds of Mardi Gras memorabilia.
