Our first Mardi Gras parade meeting is this week!

2017 Winnetka Heights Mardi Gras Parade Kickoff Meeting
Wednesday, January 11 at 6:30 p.m.
810 West Davis St.

The Oak Cliff Mardi Gras Parade will be here before we know it, and we’re ready to get started on the Winnetka Heights float.

We’ll kick things off at our first meeting this Wednesday, so be sure to come if you want to participate! We’ll discuss what this year’s float build will entail, plus talk about the theme (psssst – it’s a secret).

If you can’t make it to the first meeting, but want to participate in future float builds, be sure to join this private group. This will be your go-to source for discussions, information about the float, the build schedule and any other updates that occur throughout the process.

This is one our favorite times of the year, and a great chance for you to get involved, hang out with your neighbors and meet new folks. We invite all Winnetka Heights neighbors, of all ages, to join us in this year’s parade. The more kids, the better!

You can learn more about the float build by joining our private group.

We hope to say as many of you as we can on Wednesday! Thank you to all the neighbors who’ve participated in this fun event in past years.


Calling all young creatives!

The Communications Committee is currently working on our Winter newsletter, slated to drop in January. We’d love to feature items from the young creative spirits in our neighborhood!

Please encourage neighborhood kids of all ages to share their stories, poems, essays, drawings and other musings by emailing Chris White at

The deadline for the Winter newsletter is Wednesday, December 28, but we’ll be accepting submissions throughout the year for future newsletters.
