Hear ye, hear ye! The time has come for the 26th annual FAT SATURDAY PARADE OF FOOLS! Continue reading
Thanks for the interview, KFSM!
Not only is it that time of the year again, but this is a VERY special year… Fayetteville Mardi Gras turns 25! It’s hard to believe that we’ve been at this for a quarter of a century, but we have, and BOY has it been fun!
Thanks to Stephan Pollard of Krewe Carnaval do Brasil for putting together this video for us of the 2015 parade!
Can you believe we’ve been doing this for 24 years?? We can’t, but it’s because we’ve been having so much fun! At the beginning of each year we start planning, creating, moving and shaking, all to put together the most creative and fun Fat Saturday and Fat Tuesday celebrations you can imagine. (Or, at least, WE think so). This year’s parade and 2nd line celebration will be no different: ALL FUN FOR EVERYONE!
The fun starts with the Fat Saturday Parade of Fools. Costumes, floats, and beads, beads, beads! This family-friendly event is fun to watch and even more fun to participate in. Bring your friends and family, and join the fun! This year LOVE IS IN THE AIR, because Fat Saturday falls on Valentine’s Day! Why is this, you ask? (I heard you). Well, here’s a brief explanation of why the date changes every year:
It’s hard to believe, but Mardi Gras 2015 is just around the corner! That means there’s a parade coming, and we need some special help. It takes time and effort to throw this kind of celebration. If you love this parade and want to help Fayetteville Mardi Gras keep it alive…VOLUNTEER! We are looking for folks just like you to help keep this 24 year old Fayetteville tradition going!
