This year, Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama, the “original” Mardi Gras, began January 8 and runs through the big events on February 8. I didn’t realize that the events for Mardi Gras had already begun since the local newspaper here had a huge mention that the January 23 issue would have a full schedule of events. Well, folks, the parades and hullabaloo has already begun.
The schedule of Mardi Gras events in Mobile include parades and balls all month long, including February 3 when there is a Mystic Striper Parade.
Unfortunately, I’ll be out of town for the rest of the time period, so I’ll have to schedule my travels better for next year.
When next year? Here are the dates of the end of the Mardi Gras fun in Mobile, Alabama, in the future:
