Mardi Gras! Galveston, the third largest Mardi Gras celebration in the United States, normally offers the unique chance to experience sand between your toes and gorgeous beach sunsets while taking in the revelry and lavish parades known to dominate Galveston Island during carnival season.
Unfortunately, the island’s 110th Mardi Gras celebration, has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Let the Good Times Roll in 2022! Not this year.
Mardi Gras was first publicly observed on Galveston Island in 1867. Following a sabbatical imposed in 1941 by war and challenging times, Mardi Gras! Galveston was revived in 1985 by Galveston-born preservationist and developer George P. Mitchell.
