Read on for important details about route and arrival
Our 33rd annual Navarre Beach Mardi Gras parade will happen rain or shine on Saturday, February 23, on Gulf Blvd. on Navarre Beach. We step off promptly at 1 pm, but be advised that the Santa Rosa Sheriff’s deputies close the bridge by noon or earlier, and we have no control over that timing or their decision. It’s rain or shine – and since 1986 it has NEVER rained on our parade.
We recommend that if you are driving across the bridge, you get across by 10 am to ensure that you can cross and that you can find parking. In recent years, the crowd has been upward of 35,000 for this event. So bring the kids, the chairs, the strollers, the tailgate, and make a day of it. Restaurants will be open, and its always great to be at the beach!
The map of the parade lineup route is here. It starts at Indiana and Gulf Blvd, and proceeds east on Gulf Blvd, ending at the Navarre Beach Causeway.
