Let the good times roll! Join us on Tuesday, March 1st in the downtown Milwaukee skywalks for plenty of Mardi Gras fun kicking off at 12:00pm at 100 East Wisconsin Ave.

MuralThe parade kicks off at 12:00pm near the (new!) mural in the Plankinton Avenue skywalk, between ASQ Center and Plankinton Arcade. Following the first stop, the next appearance will be near the (new!) mural in the 2nd Street skywalk, between Plankinton Arcade and The Avenue at 12:20pm. And the last, but certainly not least, part of the route will be the 3rd Street Market Hall at The Avenue at 12:30pm.

The parade will be led by the Extra Crispy Brass Band, featuring local drag queens, and beads galore.

You’ll want to stick around at the 3rd Street Market Hall after the parade concludes for a final performance of Extra Crispy Brass Band, and hey, there are some great options for lunch inside the 3rd Street Market Hall!
