Alton Towers Mardi Gras Parade
At the end of the day, 30 minutes before rides close the park welcomes its first parade for over 20 years! All of the krewes from around the park come together to form a parade. Starting from the sweets stand near the smiler toilet block and ending at towers street, the parade goes around the park via food street, past the entrance for battle gallons and finishes with one last party outside the Towers Street Krewe. Featuring Alton Bear - this is a parade not to be missed!
This is the first time we've ever seen a parade at Alton Towers and it was so much fun, we totally understand it not being busy enough and not being viable to run this twice a day. It makes for a great ending to an event seeing all of the krewes and characters together. We also loved how the music seemed to follow them around the park, when travelling through a different area the music magically changed to suit the parade coming by.
