Cocoa Village is including your whole family in on Mardi Gras this year, and yes even your pets!
The party kicks off Friday night with Family Gras at Riverfront Park. This evening is centered around the non-furry little animals in your family, the kids! Bring them out to make their own Mardi Gras masks, sing along for one, two or both of the Jon Parrot Children’s Music Hour shows, watch the Kazoobie Kazoo show and there will even be a Children’s Mardi Gras parade at 7:30pm.
On Saturday night take a stroll down Bourbon Street right in Cocoa Village. Enjoy food samplings, Brass Band, Jazz and Blues music on three different stages, a roaming sax player, and of course no Mardi Gras celebration would be complete without a parade. The Mardi Gras parade rolls thru at 9pm with over 30 floats! There will be two park and ride locations for your convenience: Sam’s Club in Cocoa and Health First Healthplex in Merritt Island.
On Sunday things may get a little hairy, no really, the party gets pet friendly! Bring your furry friends for a day in the park. While you’re there you can learn about rescue organizations, get samplings from pet friendly vendors, enjoy a parade of pets and then the King and Queen of Mardi Paws will be announced.
Weekend weather forcast = AMAZING, enjoy it!
