Isle of Wight Mardi GrasBook
The free annual Isle of Wight Mardi Gras parade returns to Ryde this June, showcasing the best of Island schools and community organisations alongside samba bands and carnival groups, making for a memorable party atmosphere.
Around 800 children and young people will come together in fabulous costumes to celebrate IW Mardi Gras 2019’s overarching theme of ‘Biosphere Island’.
Each school or group involved will be working under headings including ‘Historic Environment’, ‘Food and Farming’ and ‘Dark Skies’
Come along, join in and enjoy the spectacle – but don’t forget to take a moment to sample the shops and eateries that Ryde has to offer, plus the glorious sandy beaches of Ryde seafront.
