Mardi Gras is one of our favorite events of the year, and this nighttime parade, held on February 9th, is a big reason we love it so much! The Mystical Order of Mirams is a local group of women hailing from Orange Beach (but with members from all over Alabama) who truly love Mardi Gras, dressing up, and throwing a parade and ball! The underlying theme is fun and Mardi Gras, but this organization does more than just throw a great Mardi Gras party: they try to give back to their community as much as possible! The Parade starts at 6 PM and is immediately followed by the invitation-only ball. Maybe you know someone who can help us get to the ball? Wink, wink!
What You Can Expect to See at the Parade
First and foremost, you can expect to see a lot of women (and men) having fun. That’s how the Mystical Order of Mirams got its start and how it continues to throw successful events year after year; they just want to have fun! You’ll see brightly colored costumes in satin and glitter, floats decorated with Cajun flair—one year they had a boat “floating” down the avenue—and beads, tons and tons of beads. What’s Mardi Gras without beads?
This is the Perfect Time!
