Galveston Mardi Gras 2020 - Saturday, February 15th

Galveston Mardi Gras - Krewe of Gambrinus
Saturday,  February 15, 2020 - "HAV-AN-A Good Time Tonight"

Houkulele has been asked once again to participate in the Krewe of Gambrinus Mardi Gras Parade. The event is really fun and a rare chance to play for 250,000 people!

The Krewe of Gambrinus is one of the kickoff parades for Galveston Island’s two-week Mardi Gras celebration. The parade starts at the Galveston Seawall at 6 PM and ends about 2-3 hours later at the far west end of ‘The Strand” near the Train Museum. The parade route is a little over 4 miles. This year’s theme is "HAV-AN-A Good Time Tonight,” so we’ll be playing easy, latin/tropical songs. We'll need lots of riders and walkers to pull off a good show!
