Mardi Gras 2017 Parade Schedule and Mardi Gras 2017 packages 

What is Mardi Gras and what does it mean?

Day of eating and merrymaking before the fasting season of Lent. An annual festival held in France on the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday” — meaning it is the last opportunity to eat rich food before the fast of Lent begins In some countries, Mardi Gras is also called "Shrove Tuesday".

The 2017 Huntsville Mardi Gras Parade happens Saturday Feb. 25th. This will be the 4th year for the annual Carnival party in downtown Huntsville. The march can be a gain for your Blount Hospitality House which supplies lodging and encouraging rooms for groups of severely ill patients seeking treatment at area hospitals.

What are the traditions of Mardi Gras?

Mardi Gras Traditions. Mardi Gras is about music, parades, picnics, floats and excitement. It's one big holiday in New Orleans! Revelers know to wear costumes or at least dress in purple, green, and gold, and adorn themselves with long beads caught from the floats of previous parades.

Mardi Gras Parade Route 2017


Mardi Gras Parade Route : March route for 2017 Huntsville Mardigras Grand Parade through downtown Huntsville. The Mardi Gras celebration starts at 4:30 pm Saturday and starts where Monroe and Meridian Roads meet. Large crowds come out to look at this event so come early to get a good spot for viewing across the parade route.
Much like past parades about 25 Krewes will need part in the parade. Some will march while some experience cars or brightly decorated floats. Some floats have live bands performing. You will have no lack of beads tossed & passed out to out-stretched hands along the parade route.

Mardigras. That brief shining moment whenever you allow your inhibitions along, you instantly turn into a lover of hurricanes and SoCo & lime pictures, and when you might start another point march in the centre of the city, you would.
