Grab your boots, your hat, and your best canine friend for a day of rip-roaring fun!
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 PM. The parade begins at Riverfront Park and winds through town, ending back at the park where the party will continue with all kinds of raucous fun. Registration is $5 for walkers, $25 for golf carts, and $50 for floats. Dogs, of course, are free.
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.
