Cocoa Village Mardi Gras is almost here and we’re so excited we can hardly wait. Buy your tickets in advance at one of our many convenient locations and save $5/ticket. Each ticket purchase includes event admission, the News Channel 13 Parade of Floats and the Soul Rebels Brass Band concert on the main stage immediately following the Parade of Floats. We’ll have tons of food and drink vendors, live music on three stages plus roaming “New Orleans” style entertainment. The gates open at 5pm so come out early, eat drink and listen to some great music. Then get your spot to catch some beads during the News Channel 13 Parade of Floats at 9pm. We’ll have over 30 floats with float riders throwing thousands of beads, doubloons, stuffed animals and more. If you’d rather purchase a “starter” set of beads, masks or feather boas we’ve got what you want. Check out our Cocoa Village Mardi Gras Merchandise and pick up your gear ahead of time.
