Mardi Gras Celebration on the Emerald CoastJanuary 15, 2015
Mardi Gras is a very big deal here along our shores. If you own Northwest Florida real estate, then you are undoubtedly aware of the big celebrations in Pensacola, as well as Mobile, Alabama, and of course, New Orleans, Louisiana.
But, did you know we have plenty of parties and parades right here on the Emerald Coast? You’re first opportunity it let the good times roll will take place on January 17, 2015. On this day, consider lining Santa Rosa Boulevard in the afternoon as the paradeÂ makes its wayÂ along Okaloosa Island. Can’t make it this weekend? No problem. On February 7, join us at HaborWalk Village, near your new home in Destin. Make your way to the Destin harbor by 2pm for the annual Mardi Gras parade featuring floats, beads and plenty of family-friendly fun!Â
We are sure you are wondering where to actually celebrate Fat Tuesday on the Gulf Coast, as well. While most of the area’s best restaurants will be celebrating with specials, we also encourage you to head back to HarborWalk Village where the many shops and restaurants will be celebrating. You can even enjoy complimentary red beans and rice!
