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 Party you won’t want to miss.
The epic celebration begins at 1 pm with free live music on OWA Island from 5 Mile Brass, an 8-piece funky rock brass band from Mobile, AL. Plus, we’ll have fun kids’ activities where they can create their own feathered Mardi Gras mask or Mardi Gras beads and Moon Pie Bingo. Then, after the parade head to OWA Island at 5 pm to check out Rockin’ Dopsie Jr. & The Zydeco Twisters.
Starting at 2 pm, the parade units will travel the streets of Downtown OWA while partygoers line the sidewalks catching swag from above.
