These past few months have been fun-filled, as there's been many holidays worth celebrating and even more events held because of them. This February, Houston has a very special event taking place that isn't something the city typically gets to enjoy. A Mardi Gras parade in Houston will be taking place this February, and it's going to be so big even New Orleans will be left a little shook.
Mardi Gras Houston 2020 will be held on Saturday, February 22 from 1 p.m. and end early the following morning at 2 a.m.
Or late that same evening, depending on how you see it.
This is only the third year that Mardi Gras Houston is taking place, and seeing as how it was Houston's first-ever Mardi Gras celebration, it's one worth experiencing.
Who said that for the month of February we only had Valentine's Day to look forward to?
The parade will take place in Downtown Houston, and if you're not entirely familiar with the area, it'll be kind of impossible to miss.
Floats, music, costumes, and more will be encompassing more streets than not, so if you end up missing out on the festivities we recommend avoiding that area at all costs!
Though, there's really no excuse in missing out, seeing as how you're being told so far in advance.
Don't worry, that's what we're here for.
Dressing up as though you're experiencing Mardi Gras in New Orleans is recommended. We wanna show our sister city we can do it just as well as them, after all.
Anything purple, green or yellow that you own needs to be dragged out of your closet and reserved for the event.
And of course, the more beads the better.
Keep an eye on their official Facebook event page to get updates on the celebration as they're released.
Mardi Gras Houston 2020

Why You Need To Go: There are few opportunities to celebrate Mardi Gras in Texas, so when they're near you, you have to go.
