Show us your kids! This year, Family Gras will take place at Mardi Gras Plaza, in the 3300 block of Veterans Memorial Bouleveards across from Lakeside Shopping Center. The festivities are scheduled for February 10 & 11 with free outdoor concerts. Enterainers will inlcuede Vince Vance & The Valiants, The Jacksons, Rick Springfield,  Imagination Movers, Hailey Whitters, A.J Croce - Croce Plays Croce, and Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles. 

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 and Symphony roll on Friday, the Magical Krewe of MadHatters and the Krewe of Centurions on Saturday, and the Krewe of Atlas 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. 

Mardi Gras is not just for grownups. Come join the fun this year!
