Celebrate Mardi Gras early at this FREE event for all ages, Sunday afternoon event under the Durham Central Park Pavilion!
We’ll have free crafting booths for kids & adults – shoe box floats & costuming. Enjoy the sounds of live music and the fun of dancing. Second line parades will happen every hour.
The Glass Jug will be in the park serving beer, wine, ginger beer, and Hurricanes for all attendees 21+.
Lornette’s Southern Kitchen (from 12-4pm) and Baton Rouge Cuisine (from 12-6pm) will be providing the New Orleans-themed eats, so come hungry!
Come as you are, or form a Krewe of friends, family, or co-workers, then pick a theme and come dressed for the party! This is the perfect place to start your celebration for downtown’s festive gathering at CCB plaza later on Mardi Gras night!
