The amazing Krewe du Cirque wants you to join the epic parade, and you can by clicking the links below! Show off your float skills to hundreds of people in the streets of Downtown OWA at Mardi Gras this year!
Are you ready to let the good times roll? Grab your masks and beads because OWA is celebrating in style with a fully decked-out float parade, followed by a colorful second line! Join us at OWA on Joe Cain Day (Feb. 23) for a day you won’t want to miss.
The epic celebration begins at 3:30pm with a free live concert with Roman Street! Don’t miss their unique sound and fun vibes on Feb. 23 until 6pm. Once the concert is over at OWA’s main entrance, simply turn around because your new favorite parade is about to start right in front of you!
The Krewe du Cirque parade will begin at 6pm! Floats will travel the streets of Downtown OWA while party-goers line the sidewalks catching swag from above. After a loop through Downtown, float riders hop off and party through the streets for a second line—you can join, too!
Stick around after the parade for even more Mardi Gras fun! Immediately following the parade, head on over to OWA’s island amphitheater for a live concert with B-Street Benny! Or wander the streets of Downtown and be surprised with multiple entertainment options, such as a free photo booth, live statues, face painters, glitter artists, and even aerial silk performers. It’s like the Mardi Gras circus came to town!
If you happen to be at OWA during the weekends leading up to Joe Cain Day, keep an out for pop-up second lines and brass bands! 😉
