Mardi Gras Nocona Style!
Mardi Gras 2021 comes to Nocona February 11-13th, as the community puts its own spin on this New Orleans-style family-friendly event.
The festival kicks off with the Mardi Gras Ball with costumes and masks galore with the selection of the Mardi Gras King & Queen! There's Cajun food and music, vendors, and activities for the whole family.
It's all about the beads, boots, and classic cars in this family-friendly event. For more information, go to the Community Calendar at the top of the page or go to the Mardi Gras Nocona Style Facebook Page!
The series of parades begins with a Pooch Parade! Dogs and owners are dressed up in their best Mardi Gras finery for a chance to win "Best Dressed" in Nocona's own Krewe de Barkus Pooch Parade!
There is also a Krewe de Couyons ATV Parade, where carts and 4-wheelers are decorated to the hilt in green, gold and purple, before our final "Big Parade" on Saturday. Our big parade consists of Mardi Gras floats, bands, horses, cars, and of course, it's all about the BEADS!
