Loxton's Mardi Gras is one of Australia's longest-running community parades and provides an opportunity to come together and celebrate our town and greater district.
This year is the 125th anniversary of farming in the area! Even amidst the pressure of ongoing drought and more recently the devastating start to the bushfire season across Australia, we have much to celebrate and be proud of.
This is why our theme of "Play" is so important. This gives us a chance to embrace a day of Play!
Show your sense of "Play" in presenting who you are and what you do with a float.
Please support our sponsors
