Join us for the City of Fort Walton Beach's annual Mardi Gras Parade and Downtown Throwdown, set for Sunday, Jan. 28, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in downtown Fort Walton Beach.
The parade floats line up at 10 a.m. along First Street SE between Eglin Parkway and Perry Avenue. The short parade kicks off at 11 a.m., traveling north on Eglin Parkway, right onto Perry Avenue, right again onto Ferry Road and ending back at First Street.
Ferry Road SE will be blocked off from First Street to U.S. Highway 98 so that Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe can entertain the crowd with live music until 4 p.m.
There is no cost for the event, but groups wanting to participate in the parade will need to register their float or group. You can find the registration form, parade route and parking map at the link below.
