A gift to the citizens of Columbia from the benevolent Krewe de ColumbiYaYa. Let's roll.


The annual parade through Rosewood is an anchor of Columbia’s Mardi Gras celebration!  Strutting through the neighborhood with music, costumes, and of course lots of beads is a tremendous way to arrive at the Mardi Gras festival at City Roots Farm.

Saturday, February 10, 2018

Time: Line up at 10:00 am, roll at 11:00 am

Place: Line up near Owens Field in  Rosewood, details below

Cost: FREE!!  Just dress up and show up.

Who: Anyone! Jump in alone or or start your own krewe.

Route: While we've been know to roll off course, we start out with a plan.  The parade will stage at 10:00 on Jim Hamilton Blvd by Owens Field airport.  We’ll roll at 11:00 am, turning right onto Airport Blvd., then the first left on Holt Dr. to a right on Woodrow St., then up to Rosewood Dr. where we turn right along Rosewood, to South Holly (at Publix) where we turn right again, and return to Airport Blvd. and the festival at City Roots.

Expect to stop for toasts!
