Mardi Gras is almost here, and we couldn’t be more excited about the local events in the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. Since Mardi Gras in the United States originates from Mobile, Alabama, we like to celebrate it all week long. Here is a list of events to look forward to:
Friday, March 1st
The Mystical Order of Mirams | 6:30 PM
The Mystical Order of Mirams kicks off the first of many family-friendly parades. From floats and costumes to moon pies and beads, this parade is one to remember. Be sure to find your spot early. The show begins on Perdido Beach Blvd east of Phoenix West at the first traffic light, down to the beginning of Highway 161. Once the parade is over, head back to Caribe Resort to unwind in between events, or if the adults would like to continue the celebration, the Orange Beach Event Center is holding the Mystical Order of Mirams ball. You must be 21 or older to enter.
Saturday, March 2nd
The Mystics of Pleasure Parade | 6:00 PM
The Mystics of Pleasure presents their parade the following night. Instead of horses, the marshals of this parade ride motorcycles. The unique atmosphere aims to please kids and adults alike! The parade takes the same path as the Mystical Order of Mirams the day before.
Moon Pies on Main | 4:00 PM
Want more events for the kids? You’re in luck. The Wharf will be holding their annual “Moon Pies on Main” event. The fun starts with a kid and pet parade, followed by rock climbing, face painting, bouncy houses, and more. To wrap up the event, there will be a float parade at 6:00 PM.
Fat Tuesday, March 5th
