Join the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus for a free, family-friendly night parade on Mississippi Avenue on Mardi Gras Day. Tuesday, March 5 at 6:00pm 10:00pm
Each year, the Krewe hosts a Mardi Gras parade for everyone on Mississippi Avenue. This family-friendly event invites all to dress up and come dance in the streets. Krewe members decorate signature mini-umbrella ‘throws’ to hand out to lucky participants.
Businesses along Mississippi Avenue will have Mardi Gras specials and events throughout the day and night, including a Kid’s Costume Contest at Luke’s Frame Shop.
The parade starts at Victoria Bar and ends at Ecliptic Brewing. The afterparty will be at Mississippi Studios.
