Celebrate Mardi Gras on the Gulf Coast!January 12, 2016
It’s almost time to laissez les bon temps roulez here on the Gulf Coast. For those who have recently purchased Emerald Coast real estate and moved to the area, that means we are going to let the good time roll – it’s Mardi Gras!
Mardi Gras, of Fat Tuesday, began just down the road from your home in Destin in the city of Mobile, Alabama. This means we know how to do it right when it comes to celebrations and parades. The first parade available to attend takes place this Saturday, January 16, on Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach. Get ready to yell “Hey, mister, throw me some beads!”, as well as enjoy festive floats and the occasional moonpie. Â
Destin will also celebrate Mardi Gras with a family friendly parade on February 6, 2016 at 2PM at HarborWalk Village. This event features dazzling floats, as well as beads, entertainment and specials at the onsite restaurants. If you want to head a little farther east, hit Seaside On February 7 in South Walton for their annual concert celebration. Or, grab your pooch and hit the Village of Baytowne Wharf for the annual pet parade at 2PM.
