18th Annual Fat Tuesday Baytowne Bash Parade
February 25 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Prepare to let your hair down on what many call the most festive day of the year, Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. “Laissez les bon temps rouler” (let the good times roll) with theannual Fat Tuesday Baytowne Bash Parade rolling through Sandestin. Yell “throw me something mister” as unique and colorful floats, golf carts, and pick-up trucks roll down the streets and marchers dressed up in all their Mardi Gras best shower parade-goers with a barrage of beads, moon pies, and other trinkets.
The post-parade celebration continues into the night with street performers, “throws” tossed from balconies on Main St, and parties at various Baytowne establishments.
The Village of Baytowne Wharf is the heart and soul of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and the gathering place for many locals and visitors along the Emerald Coast. Baytowne Wharf features restaurants, bars, shops, and family-friendly activities throughout the village. Sitting on the shore of the Choctawhatchee Bay, the area pieces together elements of an old fishing village and a New Orleans marketplace, making the atmosphere fun and relaxing. Baytowne is home of some of SoWal’s most beloved events: Mardi Gras Parade, Sandestin Gumbo Festival, Sandestin Wine Festival, Baytowne Beer Fest, Wednesday Night Concerts, Baytowne Art Walk, Baytowne Countdown and many special events throughout the year.
