Feb 17, 2010 in Entertainment, Events

(Sorry  if you received this twice- the first attempt was not successful.)

If you missed the Railroad Square Mardi Gras parade, don’t fret… there’s still more to do this week!

The Mardi Gras Parade was full of enthusiasm, laughter and music. It was a bit like First Night- when strangers met in the street to celebrate in the downtown. The Last Day Saloon’s featured act for the evening, Rythmntown Jive led the jubilant crowd through the welcoming restaurants (except one uncelebratory coffee shop who had posted guards!).
