Mead Road Mardi Gras Parade and Party
March 2 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Every year, Oakhurst residents hear the blare of brass and the clash of cymbals when the Mead Road Mardi Gras Parade and Party marches through the neighborhood from 4/5 Academy to arrive at The Imperial where the party begins with live music, beverages, Cajun food and kids’ activities until sundown. This year’s parade happens on Saturday, March 2nd. Proceeds from the event benefit Decatur Education Foundation who funds grants for music and arts programs in the City Schools of Decatur. To date, MRMG has raised $24,000 that has been used to purchase instruments, sheet music, PA equipment and theatre supplies. Be a spectator or grab your friends and establish a Krewe to march in the parade! Awards given to the Best Community Krewe. For more information about registering a Krewe or purchasing food and beverage tickets in advance, please visit www.meadrdmardigras.org. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
