Mardi Gras: Orange Beach Style

Purple, Green…and Orange?
Everyone knows about the big party on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, but did you know that there’s a Mardi Gras parade in Orange Beach? Mardi Gras got its start in Mobile back in 1703, fifteen years before New Orleans was even founded, so we’ve had a few years to get it right!
Orange Beach’s Mardi Gras celebration isn’t quite as old as Mobile’s, but we still know how to have a party! Back in 1978, some locals created the Pleasure Island Players and the rest is history. They started a parade to celebrate Mardi Gras and a year later the Mystic Order of Shiners joined them, making it a party!
Throw Me Some Beads!
There is no shortage of parades and parties in the Orange Beach area. Starting with the Krewe De La Dauphine Mardi Gras Parade on January 28th in Dauphin Island, Carnival continues throughout the month of February ending with the Order of Myths Mardi Gras Parade, the oldest Mardi Gras parade in the country.
