Get out your handkerchiefs and join the 8th Annual North Beach Mardi Gras.
Check in at the North Star between 1:30 and 2 pm where your wristband will get you drink specials including Hurricanes and Abita beer, as well as a heaping assortment of beads. Music by the legendary North Beach Brass band will follow soon after, and then they will “take it to the streets,” parading through the beautiful neighborhood streets and Washington Square Park.
The parade will finish up at Tupelo, where you can help yourself to N’awlin’s fare including jambalaya, red beans and rice, cornbread and mac and cheese straight from the Tupelo kitchen. There will be more music, beads, and of course drink specials as well up until 7 pm.
Your ticket ($12) includes free beads, drink specials and free New Orleans food from the Tupelo kitchen. Please note, it’s free to watch the parade.
Get your early bird ticket and guarantee yourself a spot on the parade and at the buffet. A portion of all ticket sales will go to supporting young lads and lasses at the Bird school of music who are learning how to play in the New Orleans tradition.
