Lake Wales Mardi Gras


The Spirit of Mardi Gras is being brought to Lake Wales February 24-25.


Get ready for Crazy Costumes, Crazy Floats, and a Crazy Good Time. The Mardi Gras festivities are on their way. This month you will be able to get a taste of the Mardi Gras experience with a parade, festival, and other events that will bring out crowds of  people.

The Mardi Gras parade has been a traditional celebration here in Lake Wales since 1984, growing a large following over the years. With no exception, 2017 is going to be another great parade to start out the new year right and experience the spirit of Mardi Gras.
