Step into the vibrant world of Mardi Gras, where the streets come alive with music, color, and exuberant celebrations.

As the floats roll and the music plays, immerse yourself in the traditions and let the spirit of Mardi Gras carry you away on a tide of joyous festivities.

As always, The Wharf is ready to celebrate in the grandest of style by accommodating all your Mardi Gras needs and desires. We’ve composed the perfect lineup for all our kings and queens to feel like royalty during the celebration.

Our MoonPies on Main parades and rockin’ DJ kick off at 4 pm on Monday, February 12. The annual Kid + Pet Parade will begin in front of Palms Plaza, so rally your kiddie + kritter krewe and meet us for the procession. Strut your stuff with your bead-clad beagle or wagon-riding tot.

The kid’s activities will get started at 5 pm following the parade, so let them keep the good times rolling by enjoying the FREE bounce house, rock wall + surf simulator. There will also be pony rides and a face painter onsite. Some children's activities are $10 each.

The Float Parade will take place at 6 pm in magnificent fashion. Get ready for flying beads and a dazzling display of colorful design traveling down Main Street!

Be sure to hang out after the Float Parade to dance in the streets to our SPECTRA Laser Light Experience or end the night on a high note aboard the Ferris Wheel, one of the tallest in the Southeast.

We’re looking forward to letting the good times roll, so grab the whole family and all your friends and join us for a celebration you don’t want to miss. See you… here!
