Mardi Gras Parade in Oak Cliff

  • Bolsa

    614 W. Davis St. , Dallas, TX (map)

    32.749218 -96.831991

  • We will meet at BOLSA - and move across the street before Parade Starts
  • Sunday before Ash Wednesday the funnest MARDI GRAS celebrations will be happening in the BISHOP ARTS DISTRICT 

    The parade is super family fun for all.

    Kids and Dogs are very welcome too.

    If you are interested in riding your bike in the parade sign up here - https://www.facebook.com/events/802551013094091/?previousaction=join&ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular&source=1

    We will meet in front of Bolsa at 3:30.

    Parking: Be very careful where you park! Do not park in any business parking lot! You will need to park in the neighborhood and more likely than not have to walk to Bolsa. Last year, there was plenty of neighborhood parking at 3 p.m.

    You will have to park your car on the street in the nearby neighborhoods. Once we are organized in front of Bolsa, we will walk and find us a good spot to watch the parade.

    You must be at this event on-time or it will be extremely, extremely hard to find us, so leave in plenty of time to drive around, find parking, and walk to the meeting location. It will get crowded, so you might want to arrive a little earlier and look around the shops until it is time to meet.

    As Last year we will meet outside BOLSA for Urban Bohemians watching the parade. We will walk either across street next to El Si HAY Taqueria Stand to watch and receive BEADS

    MAP - 600 Block of W Davis - or Map BOLSA or El SI HAY

    The parade info and MAP are in this link - http://mardigrasoakcliff.com/

    Take your own portable chair if you would like to sit and relax

    IMPORTANT -
    GO OAK CLIFF - The Organizers of the MARDI GRAS PARADE HAVE CANCELLED THE EVENT DUE TO WEATHER :(
    Note from GO OAK CLIFF -
    It is with great sadness that we officially cancel today's Mardi Gras Oak Cliff parade. Participating bands and floats had been dropping fast, and with the freezing rain/ sleet predicted to get worse, it is the safe thing for us to do. Drown your sorrows at Nova, Bolsa Restaurant, ENO'S Pizza Tavern, Oddfellows or Phd - as all of these folks will still be open and ready for a party.

    I will have SIGN and Balloons and a Carnival JESTER HAT - Will post location on this event page tomorrow - and possible BLUE Canopy for our group. Take your own portable Chair - Umblella or Plastic Pancho just in case rain comes down unexpectedly. Sorry - I don't plan to POST my telephone # because 85 is large and don't want to get bombarded with "Where are you?" calls or messages.

    I'm needing to skip this one. I'm very bummed about it. Looks like still no driving for me and the front coming through will surely kill my arthritic knee. I hope y'all have a great time!
