Like a distracted pharmacist, a parade gives you a little bit of everything. Mix it up with this Groupon.
- $14 for admission for two to Carnival Houston on Saturday, May 24 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. ($30 value)
It's a celebration of life, love, color, and diversity, and for the first time ever it's coming to Houston. Best known for it's Rio de Janeiro parade, Carnival brings out the brightest and boldest in parade members and spectators alike. After a marching band and a salute to the veterans kick off the Houston event, the Caribbean Soca Dancers masquerade down the roadway. Other sections include the Mardi Gras Krewe, led by a New Orleans brass band, and the Rio Revelers, who bring the dance stylings of the Austin Samba School. Make sure to stay for the end, when the giant puppets and stilt walkers of the Viva Paraders team bring up the rear. A day of tropical music, kaleidoscopic colors, and generalized not-giving-a-care, Carnival Houston is sure to become an annual celebration.
