Come Celebrate Mardi Gras in Gulf Shores!
As a classic beach community on Alabama’s gorgeous Gulf Coast, we here at Martinique on the Gulf are happy to invite vacationers to participate in the fabulous local Mardi Gras 2015 celebrations!
While we offer everything a beach vacationer could ask for in a comfortable resort setting, including a vast selection of regular Gulf Shores and Orange Beach activities and amenities, we’d like to highlight the extra special days surrounding one of our favorite holidays.
Mardi Gras culminates this year on February 17th, but the celebrations begin much earlier. On the 13th at 6:30 pm, Orange Beach witnesses the Mystical Order of Mirams Parade. Here you’ll watch and enjoy as revelers throw sweets, trinkets, beads, and toys. The very next day, you’ll want to be ready for the Mystics of Pleasure Mardi Gras Parade, starting at 5:30 pm.
On the big holiday, Mardi Gras itself, 10:00am brings the official Gulf Shores Mardi Gras Parade, beginning at Hwy 59 at Clubhouse Drive and ending at Main Beach Gulf Shores. This even cuts a little wilder, so get ready to shout “Hey mister, throw me a Moon Pie!” Then at 2:00 pm, the Orange Beach Mardi Gras Parade blasts off in a similarly madcap manner.
Music, dancing, costumes, and more all accompany our annual celebrations – there’s fun for the whole family!
Remember, Martinique on the Gulf always offers the sort of amenities you would expect at a classy beach resort, wrapped in a relaxed neighborhood feel. Families and guests have their pick of cozy cottages or elegant condos. With the abundant activities present, especially around Mardi Gras, vacationing together in the Gulf Shores area has never been better! Check us out!
