Comic Cowboys Mardi Gras Parade
Starting: 12:30 PM
The Comic Cowboys was founded in 1884 by Dave Levi, a Mobile store owner who was also a stage actor and comedian. Nothing fancy or pretty about them, but the Comic Cowboys are as much a Mobile Mardi Gras icon as Folly and Death or Cain's Merry Widows. The Cowboys' parade is about as stripped-down as they get. First, the group's queen, Queen Little Eva, is always a guy in a dress. It's said that the group picks the burliest member it can find to be the queen that year.
