The annual Mardi Gras Parade in the Tower begins at one o'clock and travels east along Olive Avenue to Wishon for over an hour of revelry! The parade theme this year is Myths, Folk and Fairy Tales. Arrive early to stake out your spot along the parade route and plan on retreating into your favorite Tower District haunt for post-parade drinks and treats. Tower District Restaurants will be serving up plenty of Cajun and Creole food like gumbo, jambalaya, po’ boy sandwiches and oyster shooters. Many nightspots will be hosting individual Mardi Gras parties Fat Tuesday night. Call your favorite venue for details.
The Tower District Mardi Gras celebration is made possible by the Tower District Marketing Committee and our good friends at Donaghy Sales and Heineken.
