Prepare to let your hair down on what many call the most festive day of the year, Fat Tuesday! “Laissez les bon temps rouler” (let the good times roll) with the 16th annual Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Parade. Unique and colorful floats, golf carts, and pick-up trucks roll down the streets. Dress in your Mardi Gras best, and shower parade goers with a barrage of beads, moon pies, and other trinkets. The post-parade celebration continues into the night with street performers, “throws” tossed from balconies and parties at various village merchants.
