Mardi Gras in Mobile originates as far back as 1703, making it the oldest annual Carnival celebration in the U.S. The celebration draws in more than 1.4 million visitors every year to the parades and parties. Here's how you can get involved in the community and be part of the celebration by aligning your brand with Mardi Gras on the Gulf Coast.
With Mardi Gras in particular, there's lots of pent-up demand. The entire event consumes the market for a few weeks, giving you the optimal position to capture the same essence of the festivities to connect with locals and deliver an incredible first impression.

Mardi Gras Moments
Mardi Gras Moments takes a look back at Carnival in years past. Being a part of those moments can make you a part of your audience's special memories. There's something remarkable about the celebrations that have been a huge part of the community for centuries!
Locals have a lot of pride in their Mardi Gras celebrations, especially since most have grown up attending these events with loved ones and likely are a part of generations of family members who have participated. Aligning your brand with not just moments, but years of events can be a great way to connect with your local audience and associate your brand with the celebration.
Viewers are encouraged to share their carnival spirit with the Gulf Coast. From outdoor to indoor decorations, designs are featured on air. The idea behind Carnival Creations originated from the porch parades that started in light of the pandemic and Mardi Gras being canceled in 2021.
This event was organized to show community support and bring everyone together to decorate their homes, so people can drive around and get a semblance of a Mardi Gras experience despite the restrictions put in place.
You can align your brand with this experience on FOX10 as participating houses show their local support and viewers falls in love with Mobile's genuine love for the event and their community. This can be a great way to associate your brand with the community bond that has brought so many people together over the years.
