“Ashevillage People” 2018 Asheville Mardi Gras Parade Theme!
Get out your feathers, your beads and your glitter and help us celebrate the buzzing village we all love – Asheville! This year’s theme of “AsheVillage” asks you to come out and show your pride in living in and around our inclusive, quirky and completely charming community by dressing up as an AsheVillage Person.
Riffs on the original Village People are welcome, but this is Asheville, so expect things to go a bit beyond your standard construction worker, native American, policeman, leather man, cowboy and GI. Feel like being a fairy tribal elder? Go for it! A busking alien? No problem. A drumming bumble bee? Yup, that’s cool too.
ALL are welcome to march or cheer on the marchers this February.
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
