Celebrate a mile-high Mardi Gras when Dairy Block , downtown Denver’s unique micro district in the historic LoDo neighborhood, hosts the 3rd annual Petite Parade on Saturday, Feb. 20 from 10 a.m. – noon with live music and entertainment. Attendees are also invited to “laissez les bons temps rouler” (let the good times roll) by building a festive float starting with a shoebox base.
Each float must be pulled on wheels and be no wider than 2 feet by 2 feet and shorter than 3 feet tall. Held outside in The Alley, prizes will be awarded for “Most Original Float,” “Best Team Theme,” “Best Family Float,” “Funniest Float” and more.
