There is big news for one of Asheville's biggest parties: The annual Asheville Mardi Gras Parade will be held on Sunday, February 11, 2018, in a new location.

For the first time in its 11 years, the parade is moving to the South Slope.

The parade will start on Federal Alley and finish up along Coxe Avenue.

The change is happening because of the Fed Cup tennis competition at the U.S. Cellular Center that same day.
