The Big Parade

Monday-Thursday, 6:30pm
Friday-Sunday, 5pm

Hear that? The parade is coming! Line the route and enjoy the procession of High School Marching Bands, specialty floats, horse hitches and more. See the magnificent Budweiser and Hallamore Clydesdales, try your luck at catching a few beads from the Mardi Gras revelers and dance to rockin’ tunes.

Mardi Gras Reveler Experience tickets on sale Friday, August 13 at 10am.

The application for parade participation is not available for the 2021 Fair. If you represent a high school marching band interested in playing, please contact for more information.
