Parade Route Change

Tuesday’s Mardi Gras Parade Expands

At the request of City Officials to allow more people to enjoy this year’s glittery, bead-hurling Mardi Gras parade this Tuesday, March 4th at 9PM, Carnaval festivities will now kick-off in front of the Sheraton Hotel and travel south to the malecon, through “Old Town” and wind up on Olas Altas and Rudolfo Gomez. All parade entrants are now asked to ‘stage’ their vehicles, floats and participants on the entrance road in front of the Sheraton Hotel by 730PM. For those entries concerned about the additional length of the parade, provisions have been made to have those participants join us at Parque Hidalgo.
