Show us your kids! For the second year in a row, Family Gras will take place at Clearview Center at 4436 Veterans Memorial Boulevard. This year, the festivities are scheduled for February 14-16 with free outdoor concerts by entertainers soon to be announced (check back here for updates). Last year, the lineup included John Oates, Michael McDonald, Brett Eldredge, B.J. Thomas, The Righteous Brothers, The Gatlin Brothers and others.
But Family Gras is more than just great concerts by big name performers–it's parades, food, an Art Market, kids' activities and even a run! The Krewe of Excalibur rolls on Friday, the Magical Krewe of MadHatters and the Krewe of Centurions on Saturday, and the Krewe of Atlas and the Krewe of Kings on Sunday. Come enjoy all your favorite New Orleans dishes at the Flambeau Food Court, shop for local art, photography and hand-crafted jewelry at the Art Market and don't miss the face painting, hand-wax art and interactive games for kids 12 and under at the Kids' Court. There will also be the Mardi Gras 5K and Kids' Half Mile, a festive fun run/walk that finishes at Family Gras.
