The upcoming 2016 Mardi Gras will be turning the clock back. Those who want to get a float in this year’s parade, Krewe of Koinonia, should start turning in applications by January 20th. The Parade from the Past Mardi Gras will be held on Front Street in Downtown Texarkana on Saturday February 6th.
Mardi Gras Parade and Vendor Applications are now available for the February 6th “Parade from the Past”
Here’s a small list of highlights included this year:
Front Street venue vendors and activities will begin at 10 a.m. (activities to be announced later). “Shiny Ribs” will perform live music on the Front Street stage at 1:00 p.m., video from “Shiny Ribs” https://youtu.be/GrZYooHcsAo
Float Judging begins at 2 p.m. and the Parade begins 3 p.m.
A Parade from the Past. Our theme stems from our wonderful heritage. Please decorate in any historic fashion you desire, i.e., railroad history, historic era you desire, history of baseball, history of music, etc.
The theme “A parade from the Past” will be a permanent theme that we use year after year so that people can build on their floats and make them better each year, rather than having to start over each year.
