MILLBROOK REVELERS MARDI GRAS FESTIVAL
The Millbrook Revelers Mardi Gras festival has become one of the "Must Attend" events in Alabama in the month of February. It is the largest Mardi Gras celebration North of Mobile and with over 60 vendors on site, there will be something for everyone.
Participating vendors come from Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida and of course the state of Alabama. Food items vary from aligator on a stick to gumbo, red beans and rice, smoked turkey legs and Hardee's Steak Biscuits, thick burger and hot dogs.
There will be fun rides for children of all ages. Pony rides, water walker, a climbing wall and the zip ride.
"Our date changes yearly. We have no control over this fact. Our festival and parade is always held 10 days before Mardi Gras Day which is always the day before Ash Wednesday, which is always 46 days before Easter, which is controlled by the first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after the day of the vernal equinox."
