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 2, 3 & 4  with free outdoor concerts. Entertainers will be announced shortly. 

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 will roll on Friday, the Magical Krewe of MadHatters on Saturday, and the Krewe of Atlas and the Krewe of Caerus 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!
