Mardi Gras Parade & Party at OWA

February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Are you ready to let the good times roll? Grab your masks and beads because we’re celebrating in style with a fully decked-out parade in Downtown OWA. Join us at OWA on Joe Cain Day (Feb. 11) for a Mardi Gras Parade and Afterparty you won’t want to miss.

The epic celebration begins at 1 pm with free kids’ activities where they can create their own feathered Mardi Gras mask or Mardi Gras beads and Moon Pie Bingo inside the Bohemian. Plus, checkout the 360° Photobooth at the entrance to Tropic Falls.

Starting at 2 pm, the parade units will travel the streets of Downtown OWA while partygoers line the sidewalks catching swag from above.

Stick around after the parade for even more Mardi Gras fun and live music on OWA Island from 5 Mile Brass beginning at 3:30pm and Rockin’ Dopsie Jr. & The Zydeco Twisters beginning at 5pm. OWA’s Mardi Gras celebration is an entirely free and family-friendly event.

That’s not the only Mardi Gras fun happening at OWA this season. Join us for the Krewe du Kidz and Puppy Gras on Saturday, February 3rd!
