The Ultimate Guide to Dallas Mardi Gras 2021
T.His Dallas Mardi Gras will definitely look different from previous years. But that’s fine because there are still plenty of ways to celebrate Fat Tuesday in North Texas. From 5km runs and parade walks to lobsters and hurricanes, these are the best things to do this carnival.
Run / walk / parade
The Dash for the beads 5k will be virtual this year. You can register now and complete your run before February 14th (so your results will be posted online). The annual 1M walk has been replaced by the Dash Mardi Gras People Parade. Instead of a grand parade, this year’s walk will be broken down into “parade walks” through six different neighborhoods of Oak Cliff. There will also be a costume contest. Register here for the parade walk.
