Mardi Gras Weekend in Crystal Beach, Texas has grown to not just one event, the Parade by the Lighthouse Krewe. Now there’s several events all built around family and friends. All the fun starts at 8am with the Bolivar LIVE Mardi Gras 5K Fun Run at Festival Park, then at 10am the gates open at The Pavilion @ Festival Park for the Bolivar LIVE Mardi Gras Market full of Arts, Crafts, Clothing, Furniture and more. The Bolivar LIVE Mardi Gras Market opens at 10am and closes at 4pm. A great time to shop under cover no matter the weather conditions.
Don’t worry about missing out on the Mardi Gras Parade by The Lighthouse Crew which starts just west of Jose’s and travels down Hwy 87 to Gregory Park. It will pass by Festival Park and the Pavilion so all the runners/families and shoppers can enjoy this family Mardi Gras Parade full of floats, Golf Carts, Trailers, Boats and more decorated out to the Mardi Gras theme. We have plenty of parking at Festival Park for those wanting to enjoy the Mardi Gras Parade and plenty of Hwy to Coastal Distance while watching the parade and collecting beads and goodies.
