    MARDI GRAS parades

    Let the good times roll this Mardi Gras Season at The Village of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin. Festivities kick off Sunday, Feb 11 at 2 pm with the 15th annual Mardi Gras Dog Parade. This year's theme is Bone Appetit!

    Then come out for Fat Tuesday Baytowne Bash Parade on Tuesday, February 13th at 5 pm. Unique and colorful floats, golf carts, and pick-up trucks roll down the streets. Participants dress in their Mardi Gras best, and shower parade-goers with a barrage of beads, moon-pies, and other trinkets.

    Both parades are free to attend. 100% of all entry fees from the two parades are donated to Alaqua Animal Refuge.
