Mardi Gras Festival (SFFT)

Welcome to Fiesta Texas and to their brand new MARDI GRAS FESTIVAL.

I really enjoyed the decorations in the main street area of the park.

The Looney Tunes characters were all dressed in Mardi Gras attire.

Most of the Mardi Gras attractions were located near Rockville High School.  Here you could purchase specialty foods (like King Cakes) and adult beverages (including Hurricanes)

The main attraction for the Festival is the daily parade.

The parade is led by the King William Brass Band.

The parade features a lot of the characters you would expect to find in a Mardi Gras parade.

The floats are very well done.

Each unit had a different theme and had accompanying characters parading along with the floats.

It was literally raining beads from each float - so if you left without at least one strand then you were not trying hard enough.

The Day of the Dead unit was probably my favorite.

These guys were having a great time.

The parade ends with Bugs and Babs Bunny as the Mardi Gras Royalty.
This is a great event that I see expanding to other parks soon.
