Since we’ve got the streets blocked for the Parade, how about a one-mile “Fun Run” immediately prior to our Parade Start? Down Wilson Blvd, and then back up the hill? It turns out it’s exactly one mile from Don Tito’s to Cardinal Bank, and back!
With your race bib, you get Mardi Gras Beads, a generic mask, free admission to the Mardi Gras Ball, a bottle of water, a drink token, great live entertainment, and the best-dressed runners are eligible for cash prizes!
Feel free to dress expressively and bring your own mask! Pink hats are welcome! The Mardi Gras Parade is inclusive and family friendly, so register to run, come to the ball, and put your dancing shoes on!
The Masked Mile Registration will start at 6pm at Clarendon Ballroom, and the race will start at 7pm.
Tickets are $25 in advance of the event, and $30 at the door.
