Carnegie Carnival

Carnegie Carnival is a Mardi Gras style parade and celebration held in Decatur, Alabama. If you have never been to Mobile or New Orleans for Mardi Gras, this is a great way to find out what it's all about without a long car ride. This is the sixth year for the parade. Last year, they had over thirty floats and this year promises to be bigger and better. So get ready to catch plenty of beads and moon pies. On February 25th, there are three parades with the main parade starting at 6:00 p.m. All proceeds go to support the Carnegie Visual Arts Center.
