Carnegie Carnival 2021 will be a drive-thru parade combining our children’s parade and main parade featuring lights and music in downtown Decatur. Due to Covid restrictions, the parade will be stationary this year as the viewers travel one way down Bank Street to Second Avenue. We encourage you to enter the parade route on Church Street where the first 500 cars will receive a Carnival Swag bag. The floats and crewes will begin at the intersection of Walnut and Bank Streets and will continue to Second Avenue where cars will exit the parade at Moulton Street.
Have you ever seen a full-size replica of a wooden pirate ship “sail” down the street? It happens every year at Carnegie Carnival, North Alabama’s Premier Mardi Gras Celebration! Join the Pirate Crewe O’Ye Crooked Goat, the Sirens of Achelous and Skeleton Crewe, Joe Cain’s Merry Widows, that wild and crazy Crewe of Chaos, the Majesties of Marmac, and the other-side-of-towners from the Southwest of the Border Crewe, plus many, many more for an unforgettable night of fabulous floats, music, dancing, and most importantly family fun!
