Apalachicola Mardi Gras Barkus Parade & Street Festival
February 25, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Come and celebrate Mardi Gras Apalach style with a street festival and parade (1 pm) of costumed folks and their dogs. The theme for this year’s parade is Grateful Dogs so break out the tie dye, love beads, and bring your Grateful Dogs. The parade of walkers, decorated golf carts, and boats, begins at Riverfront Park and winds through town, ending back at the park where the party will continue with live music, dancing, a variety of local food, local arts and crafts vendors, and all kinds of raucous fun. Sponsored by the Mystic Krewe of Salty Barkers, the event is for the benefit of the Franklin County Animal Shelter and the Florida Wild Mammal Association.
