Mardi Gras is one of our favorite times of the year. You can always catch us at the annual Port Aransas Mardi Gras Parade. The parade is held on Fat Tuesday every year. As you can see my friend Rob and I like to get dressed up for the occasion.

Join in the parade and decorate your golf cart or other vessel in the spirit of Mardi Gras for a parade around town or come and spectate and catch some beads.

Be on the lookout for Port A Bucket List as we like to throw lots of goodies!!
