We’re rounding out January and heading on into February for a fun week of Carnival life. While Carnival season has been going on for the last few weeks, you can still catch plenty of fun here on the Coast. Mardi Gras or ‘Fat Tuesday’ marks the end of carnival season. This popular event takes place here in Mississippi on Feb. Here at Biloxi Beach Resort Rentals, we have lots of Mississippi vacation rentals fit for an exciting season!
This year Mardi Gras falls on February, 28th, the last day of the month and right before Ash Wednesday. With plenty of time to pack your bags, jet off on a fun adventure south. You’ll love experiencing real Mississippian culture when you watch the Mardi Gras Parades.
Carnival parades have been a staple in Mississippi for over 100 years. Nowadays there are more than 20 separate ceremonies that run throughout this season around the Gulf Coast. In Biloxi, there are quite a few you’ll want to check out. We’ve listed below a couple of parades you’ll find in Biloxi, but there are so much more in the Gulf Coast area you won’t want to miss out!
- SECOND LINERS MARDI GRAS CLUB PARADE at 1pm on Februrary 11th.
- 17TH ANNUAL BILOXI CHILDREN’S MARDI GRAS WALKING PARADE at 10 am on February 18th.
- ANNUAL GULF COAST CARNIVAL ASSOCIATION MARDI GRAS PARADE at 1 pm on February 28th.
These three shows will be held throughout Biloxi, and among the activities, there are beautifully decorated floats, live entertainment, contests for costumes and floats, plus other fun events for the whole family. You can also experience the trinkets tossed from the floats. The aformentioned is a common thing for the ‘krewes’ of the floats to hand out items. Favorite items include smaller trinkets such as doubloons, beads, stuffed animals cutes, and more.
When you choose to enjoy your southern vacation, experience Mississippi by visiting during Carnival Season. It’s a fun time you won’t forget no matter how late you party.
