Get ready to enjoy Mardi Gras Gulf Coast-style as Port Arthur “laissez les bons temps rouler” during four days of frivolity held this year with an “Island Fever” theme.
Performers are preparing a gumbo of great tunes to please every attendee’s musical palate. Entertainers taking the stage this year include Robert Earl Keen, Harrison Swift, the Casey Donahew Band, Lil’ Wayne and Same Ole’ 2 Step, Travis Matte and the Kingpins, American Sons, The Stark Experiment and many more.
The celebration commences with the Courir Parade, and the good times continue to roll through the streets of Port Arthur each day as the Krewe of Krewes parade, the royalty march, the motorcycle showcase, the Krewe of Aurora, the Munchkin parade and the truck parade file past sightseers.
After catching throws and doubloons, catch the excitement of the many rides and activities at the carnival.
