This celebration of local arts and community has the distinction of being the first Mardi Gras parade to be held in Oklahoma. One of the largest and most colorful parades in the Oklahoma City metro area, the parade will travel east along Main Street to Crawford Avenue, where it will head south to Comanche Street and west back to Jones Avenue. The parade will complete the route twice.
