2018 Mardi Gras Parade

We are excited to announce that Joy of Life on the Gulf Coast will sponsor its inaugural parade during the 2018 Mardi Gras season. We will ride on Monday, February 5th at 6:30 pm immediately following the Order of Venus.

Float Sponsorships

Float Sponsorship opportunities are available for a donation of $5,000.00 and each float holds approximately 20 revelers. Each float will host a St. Jude patient representative and his or her parents with the remaining spots yours to fill. Each reveler will be required to wear a mask although coordinating themes are not required. Throws will be the responsibility of the sponsor or individual revelers.

In addition to seats on your sponsored float, your name will be displayed on signage introducing the float as well as print and broadcast media. You will also receive tickets to the Joy of Life Ball which will be held on Saturday, February 3rd at the Daphne Civic Center.

Individual Riders

We are also offering the ability to ride with us as an individual. Each seat is $250. Riders are responsible for all throws and must be masked at all times. 

Purchase as spot

Rider Throws Package

Gulf Coast Beads has put together a rider package at a discounted rate. If you or your riders would like to purchase one please include one of these for each rider. Gulf Coast Beads is donating the throws for each St. Jude patient and their parents and have given us a discount, so if possible we’d like for everyone to support them with their purchases.
