You don’t have to be in the Big Easy to have some Mardi Gras fun this year. You can enjoy Mardi Gras and the beach at the same time by visiting Destin Commons. Destin Commons is hosting the Mardi Gras Masquerade this year and it is sure to put everyone in the spirit. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by so you can take part in the fun. This is definitely an event that you will not want to miss.
The parade is at the center of Destin Commons’ Mardi Gras Masquerade. The parade will have over 30 floats, so there will certainly be something that will catch your eye and get you into the Mardi Gras spirit. Along with the floats, you will see a steady stream of people walk by with the parade. You will also see a steady stream of beads and other trinkets flying through the air during the parade. Be sure to catch some for a souvenir.
The parade will go down Main Street, starting at Bass Pro Shops and ending at Belk. Be sure to grab a spot between those two stores so you can take it all in at Destin Commons.
The parade might be the main event, but it is far from the only thing going on at Destin Commons for Mardi Gras. There will be some great activities for kids, including a station for kids to create their own Mardi Gras accessories, as well as a face painting area. Your kids can have their faces painted for a fun Mardi Gras mask.
Mardi Gras would not be Mardi Gras without some live music. Destin Commons knows that, so visitors will get to listen to live music from Jones and Company Band. Several entertainment magazines voted Jones and Company Band the best band in the area, so be sure to check them out.
Along with Jones and Company Band, Destin Commons is bringing in an authentic Mardi Gras street brass band. You can hear them playing as you walk around Destin Commons. That will add to the atmosphere.
