The City of Prattville's 11th annual Mardi Gras Parade will be held on Saturday, January 31st, and will roll out from the Autauga County Courthouse at 2:00 p.m.

We are very excited to announce that the Grand Marshal for this year's parade is Jeremy Arthur, President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama. Mr. Arthur is a Prattville resident whose leadership is recognized not only in our community as past President of the Chamber of Commerce, but nationally as well. He serves on the Board of Trustees of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber Committee of 100. He holds a BA and MPA from Auburn University and serves on the Board of Directors and as Committee Chair for the national Auburn Alumni Association. He is a graduate of Leadership Alabama and serves on many committees and task forces throughout the state and the River Region.

Jeremy is a devoted member of the Prattville community and volunteers for many events and programs in the City of Prattville and serves on the Prattville Creative and Performing Arts Council. We are very proud to have him as Grand Marshal for our Mardi Gras Parade.

Beginning at 12 noon there will be arts and crafts, specialty products, Mardi Gras novelties, music and great food at the Partners in Pediatrics parking lot and just down the street in the grassy area by the Fountain, there will be children's inflatables and games.
