Destin Commons Mardi Gras Masquerade


If you don’t know your Mardi Gras history or the French language, “Laissez bon temps rouler” means “Let the good times roll,” and indeed they do as Carnival and Mardi Gras begins here in Destin, Florida.

One of the best family friendly places to kick off the celebration is at ilLoveDestin.com partner the Destin Commons and their Mardi Gras Masquerade. Watch a non-stop line up of over 30 floats and people on parade down Main Street from Bass Pro Shops to Belk. Plentiful treasures and trinkets abound. Enjoy lively entertainment by local favorite Jones & Company and an authentic Mardi Gras street brass band playing throughout the Center. There will be face painting and the opportunity for children to create their very own festive Mardi Gras accessories for the best looking masquerade masks this side of New Orleans.

And the good times will roll!
