Entries for the CarniVail Fat Tuesday Parade on Feb. 9 are currently being accepted by event organizers and are due by Jan. 22. Local businesses, organizations and groups are invited to participate in the Mardi Gras themed parade where a $1,000 prize will be awarded to the winning entry. The application is available online with a limited amount of entries available.
Sponsored in part by the Vail Commission on Special Events, the Fat Tuesday Parade will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. and will travel from Meadow Drive at Solaris, across the International Bridge and east on Gore Creek Drive where it will conclude with the official crowning of the CarniVail King and Queen and announcement of the float competition winner.
Following the parade, a free concert with MarchFourth Marching Band will be held. Locals and guests will be encouraged to dress up in Mardi Gras apparel and beads and partake in all the CarniVail fun. The celebration kicks off with the World’s Highest Low-Country Crawfish Boil at Eagle’s Nest on Feb. 6.
