Party goers are encouraged to bring beads and they will be on sale at the event as well. There will be street performers, local team mascots, cheerleaders and bands. Face painters and a 6 foot diameter king cake will live on the Libretto's patio ready for you to get a real taste of Mardi Gras. Multiple Hurricane bars will be spread out through the 1st and 2nd levels of the EPICENTRE just as they line Bourbon st. Main event will start at 8pm when the parade kicks off!
