Pensacola Mardi Gras Kick Off Celebration
January 4 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm UTC+0
Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc is very happy to present the 2020 Pensacola Mardi Gras Kick Off Celebration on Saturday, January 4th.
There will be live entertainment, a king cake cutting, a second line, and the blessing of the fleet. See the best floats of Pensacola’s parading Mardi Gras Krewes as their entire Krewe descends on Palafox and Government Streets. Krewes will be ceremoniously blessed and proclaimed ready to participate in Mardi Gras festivities. Each Krewe will be in costume and will have it’s royalty present. A Catholic priest, along with the Town Crier T. Bubba Bechtol, will bless each float individually, the City of Pensacola, and the entire Pensacola Mardi Gras season.
Come out to the Mardi Gras Kick Off for FREE King Cake and to dance the night away with a second line jazz band street performance.
The party starts at 5:00 pm. Local Krewes have been gearing up all year in preparation to unveil their float’s new themes and colors. Not to mention the Krewe members’ elaborate costumes! This is a chance for all Krewes and all of Pensacola to join together and ring in the 2019 Mardi Gras season.
