When you think of a Mardi Gras celebration what comes to mind? Big jazz bands, Bourbon Street, beads, parades and a lot of people, right? What about dogs? Does that come to mind? Well, in the beautiful and buzzing city of DeLand Florida, Dogs come to mind every year when it is time for the Annual Mardi Gras Parade! This year it was spectacular!
Mardi Gras On Mainstreet Dog Parade presented by the Krewe of Amalee was SO much FUN! We had a blast hanging with the BIG DOGS… and the little ones too. From Great Dane to Chihuahua, every size shape and fur was proud to strut their stuff (and they brought their owners!) Watch and ENJOY every second of the Happy Furry Fun we had here in DeLand! LOVE the awesome LION DOG towards the end.

Swinging Tails and Beads Galore
Countless Dogs of every breed and their owners (respectively) made it out to march in the parade or were guests out on the sidelines. Costumes were bedazzled and pomp filled the air as music played and it was a hit! The Krewe of Amalee pulled this off with out a hitch. Businesses and organizations alike prepped and planned their floats and each one was a showstopper. Have you seen a Greyhound in a tutu? How about a Hot Pink Standard Poodle? They were here, All dogs, big and small marched down Mainstreet DeLand and left us in anticipation of next years parade.
The crowds clamored for the handfuls of beads that were tossed throughout the entire parade and the marchers made sure no body got missed! Thank you DeLand, for always bringing out the kid in all of us and being that unique small city with BIG CITY fun.
