RESCHEDULED- Mardi Gras Parade in Nocona, Texas

March 5

Due to the inclement weather conditions this week and weekend, our CCT road trip to Nocona for this Saturday, February 26th has been rescheduled to occur on the following Saturday, March 5th.  The Nocona Chamber of Commerce has been closed for the next several days due to the ice and snow conditions they are experiencing. The latest Nocona forecast high for this Saturday is only 39 degrees with an 80% chance of rain, so I don’t expect the parade to occur as planned. At this time, I don’t know if the parade will be rescheduled.

We will do the road trip as planned except it will be on the following Saturday, March 5th when the forecasted temperature is 70 degrees and no rain.  We will meet an hour later than previously planned.

Meeting Location: Presidio Plaza 5800 Interstate 35 N, Denton, TX 76207 meet at 10:30AM. Take I-35 exit 470 Hwy 288 Loop.  Merge onto the I-35 frontage road then turn right into the Presidio Plaza parking lot.

 

Departure Time: 10:45 AM We will take I-35 North to Sanger exit 476, turn left onto hwy 455 to Forestburg, then hwy 677 to Saint Jo.  At 12 noon we then take hwy 82 into Nocona.  This is an interesting route with hills and curves in the road.

We will be stopping for lunch at the Lazy Heart Grill located 101 S. Main St in Saint Jo, TX @ 12:15 AM prior to participating in Nocona’s parade. We will leave the restaurant @ noon.

After arriving in Nacona, we will tour the large Horton Classic Car Museum containing 129 classics, which includes a lot of Corvettes, muscle cars, and pre-fifties classics. Admission is $12 each, $10 for seniors, $8 for groups of 20 or more. Bring cash for admission.

Our previous plans…

Our next event being planned is a road trip to Nocona, Texas to participate in their annual Mardi Gras Parade on Saturday, February 25th at 3:30 pm. We will also tour the Horton Classic Car Museum prior to the parade. The museum contains over 120 American-made vintage classic and muscle cars, including over 40 Corvettes.

Nocona Mardi Gras Parade!

New Orleans comes to downtown Nocona, Texas with all the regalia & entertainment, including a parade at 3:30 PM on Saturday, February 26th, 2022 (it’s all about the beads). Boots, beads, and classic cars highlight the unusual twist the town of Nocona makes to the annual Mardi Gras celebration.

Come join fellow CCT Members for our first parade event in 2022.  We will depart from the Horny Toad Café in Denton and drive to Nocona, Texas where we will participate in the Nocona Mardi Gras Parade on Saturday afternoon on February 26th.  We will give CCT participants Mardi Gras Beads for you to throw to the spectators during the parade.  You can also purchase and throw candy if you choose.  You may also want to apply decorations to your Corvette.
