Mardi Gras Revelry on the Alabama Gulf Coast
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
Moon pies and mystics. Beads and boat parades. We're talking Mardi Gras, Alabama beaches style. With the birthplace of Carnival just a short drive away in Mobile, Alabama, many of the rich traditions of the holiday have trickled over to Alabama's white-sand beaches. Experience bright costumes, Mardi Gras balls and colorful parades with coastal flair. If you've never seen a Mardi Gras boat parade, then this is your chance! Carnival on the coast has something for both the adults and the kids.
Family-friendly parades make Gulf Shores and Orange Beach a fun spot for the whole family to experience this annual revelry. For more Mardi Gras fun, including balls and parades in nearby Fairhope, Daphne and Mobile, check our calendar.
