The Mardi Gras season is upon us and this year you can find all the parade routes and times here. This season’s downtown Mobile parades begin on Friday, February 10 and go through Tuesday, February 28th which is the Fat Tuesday holiday. There are six different parade routes lettered “A” through “F”. The main route for a majority of the parades will be on route A. Below you can see that route that begins and ends on South Claiborne Street. If you have not been downtown lately it can be a bit difficult to find a park a parking space near where you would like to partake in the parade. A good place to park is the Civic Center because of the easy-in and easy-out. Under the convention center is another possibility as well. Keep in mind that parking is prohibited along the parade routes 2 hours before and 2 hours after. If you are found parked on these routes during those times your vehicle will be towed at an expense of $125.
