Why wait until Tuesday? Celebrate Mardi Gras on Historic Mississippi Avenue, Saturday, February 13.
Join us Saturday February 13 for a day filled with family fun and celebrating Mardi Gras! There will be mask making, and bike decorating at the Q Center with face painting and balloon artists. Then you and the kids can join in on our Moving Street Parade at 3:00pm which starts at Skidmore and ends at Fremont.
