The Navarre Krewe of Jesters is proud to present the 34th annual Navarre Beach Mardi Gras Parade. Come out for family-friendly fun, floats, and beads! The theme this year is “NKOJ Beach Life”. Click for parade application.
The Navarre Krewe of Jesters was founded in 1986. Throughout the years, the Krewe has grown in membership. The parade, first held February 28, 1987, has grown from 10 or so walking Jesters and a ragtag mix of vehicles and floats to almost 60 floats and entries.
This annual event takes place on the Saturday prior to Ash Wednesday. It draws entries from local businesses and social organizations as well as organizations from as far away as central Alabama. The Navarre Beach Mardi Gras Parade is well known as a family oriented parade. Many families are annual spectators, knowing that their children will enjoy a parade free from the bacchanalian escapades that inundate other parades.
For all participants, there will be a MANDATORY Sheriff’s/Safety Float meeting will be held Monday, February 7, 2020 at 7 pm, at the Elks Lodge, on Elks Rd North, behind the Shrimp Basket on Hwy 98, If you need directions please contact Wayne Hall at 850-499-3010, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
