Despite the abundance of king cakes, decorations and Carnival supplies on store shelves, the first Coast Carnival parades are still a few weeks away.
Never miss a local story.
Five parades roll Feb. 11. From there, it will be Carnival parades galore every weekend through Mardi Gras, which is Feb. 28. .
As previously reported, the Orange Grove Carnival Association disbanded after last year’s parade and will not parade this year, but a dog parade, Barkloxi, is new to the lineup and will roll Feb. 19.
Here is a list of all the parades we could find and verify. If you know of others, email firstname.lastname@example.org with details and contact info to let us know.
Be sure to check out the Sun Herald’s Mardi Gras 2017 Marquee edition Feb. 3 with more details on Carnival season, including krewe histories, parade maps, routes, dates and times and more.
