Saturday, February 22, 2020
11:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Riverfront Park, Apalachicola, Florida
The theme is: Surf Dogs USA…
and we expect our guests will be excited by the choice that reflects our local coastal character. It offers lots of possibilities for costumes and decorating.
Come join us in celebrating all the fun of Mardi Gras with dogs!
The festivities will start at 11:00 am at Riverfront Park with live entertainment, local food vendors and a variety of arts and craft vendors to enjoy while strolling through the park. The parade begins at 1:00.
The King and Queen of Apalachicola’s Mardi Gras parade are always shelter animals who are ready for a forever home. As always, they will have a place of honor in the parade.
In the tradition of the Mystic Krewe of Salty Barkers, profits from the parade will be donated to help care for the animals of the Forgotten Coast of Florida. Beneficiaries have included Franklin County Humane Society, the Florida Wild Mammal Association and the Apalachicola Dog Park. We greatly appreciate the support of the local businesses and families who sponsor the Krewe in its tradition of charity and service to the animals.
