The epic celebration begins at 2pm with a free live concert on OWA Island by Troy Laz Band, a one-of-a-kind, high energy band from New Orleans. 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 party 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.

That’s not the only Mardi Gras fun happening at OWA this season. We also have two other parades leading up to Joe Cain Day. Join us for the Krewe Du Kidz and Puppy Gras walking parades!
