Pensacola Mardi Gras Kick Off Celebration
January 5 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Pensacola Mardi Gras Inc is very happy to present the 2019 Pensacola Mardi Gras Kick Off Celebration.
Pensacola’s best parading Mardi Gras Krewes will have their float and their entire Krewe on Palafox and Government Streets. Their Krewe 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 Father, 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 and join us for FREE King Cake, provided by Classic City Catering, and 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.
