Mardi-Gras Parade on Bolivar Peninsula is a full day of fun with family and friends!
A weekend event for most, with a Saturday Morning Parade. Mardi Gras on Bolivar Peninsula has grown through-out the years and grown even BIGGER since Hurricane Ike.
Join us on Bolivar Peninsula in Crystal Beach Texas for our Texas Mardi Gras Parade and Celebration!!!
The Bolivar Event Cam is always streaming LIVE from somewhere along the parade route from before the parade starts to well after it's over. Watch for the Bolivar LIVE Truck doing LIVE Feeds on our Facebook page before and during the parade.
Bolivars Mardi Gras Parade kicks-off about 11:30 am most years and starts just west of Hard-Heads Ice House traveling north/east along Hwy 87 and ends at Gregory Park. Don’t think you can sleep-in, you better get your watching spot early as families and friends stake claim to their favorite location early with BBQ pits fired-up for the parade. From Fire Trucks to Little Red Wagons pulled behind Golf Carts. Big Trailer Floats with Live Bands playing their favorite Cajun Song keep on-lookers entertained as the parade makes its way down Hwy 87. Kids, bring you a bag for all the candy, beads and bling each float has to offer and throws to on-lookers. Once the parade ends at Gregory Park it's time to head to your favorite restaurant when in most cases you'll find LIVE Music and Boiled Crawfish.
It’s a yearly kick-off for area restaurants to bring in Live Music to their eatery and most have the Boiling Pots Fired-up serving mouth-watering Boiled Crawfish, a favorite of many after the parade. It’s a great event for family and friends, need a place to stay for the weekend, don’t worry, Bolivar Peninsula has many RV parks along the route or with-in walking distance to the parade route, need a vacation home, check with one of the many area Real Estate Companies for a weekend Beach House Rental but don’t wait till the last minute, Mardi Gras is a BIG Event on Bolivar. The great deal is with Mardi Gras being so early in the year most vacation rentals are at off-season rates which save you money.
