New this year, organizers are giving a few lucky parade goers a chance to win some extraordinary prizes. Exclusive Golden Mardi Gras beads will be thrown out during parades on the first Friday, Feb. 10 at the George P. Mitchell Mardi Gras Parade at 7 p.m., and again at parades on Saturday, Feb. 11, and Friday, Feb. 17.

Prizes include a cruise out of Galveston from GalvestonCruises.com, a unique Houston brewery tour with a Houston hotel from Del Papa Distributing, Schlitterbahn season passes and VIP Island passes to local attractions from Visit Galveston.
