It’s a Mardi Gras Parade & Party featuring Krewe Du Cirque this Joe Cain Day in Downtown OWA! Are you ready to let the good times roll? Grab your masks and beads because we’re celebrating in style with a fully decked-out float parade led by the Krewe Du Cirque of Foley, as well as a colorful second line. Join us at OWA on Joe Cain Day (Feb. 27) for a Mardi Gras parade and party you won’t want to miss.
The epic celebration begins at 2pm with a free live concert on OWA Island by Black Water Brass Band, an 8-piece New Orleans style funk and jazz band. Plus, we’ll have fun kids’ activities, a photo booth and a face painter. Head to the OWA Island at 4PM to check out Doctor Zarr’s Amazing Funk Monster, a high energy cover band direct from Memphis, TN.
Starting at 6pm, floats will travel the streets of Downtown OWA while partygoers line the sidewalks catching swag from above. And that’s not the only parade happening that night! Whether you’re riding on a float or watching from the street, either way, you can be a part of our second line parade on foot as we extend the fun with a special walking parade!
Stick around after the parade for even more Mardi Gras fun and live music! OWA’s Mardi Gras celebration is an entirely free and family-friendly event.
