Mardi Gras 2022 on Mobile: Live Coverage
MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Mardi Gras returned to Mobile in 2022 after the COVID-19 pandemic put an end to the city’s famous parades. We’ve been live at events throughout the Mardi Gras season, and we’re live on Tuesday with the biggest parades of them all.
It’s a busy day in downtown Mobile. The Order of Athena Parade begins at 10:30 a.m. The parades continue throughout the afternoon with the 6 p.m. Order of Myths Parade capping off the festivities.
