Mardi Gras on Main Street Brings Mardi Gras to You
Every year the sounds and smells of Mardi Gras fill the air throughout the Palestine Main Street District at the Mardi Gras on Main: A Foodie Fest and Parade.
The event showcases Palestine Main Street’s local flavors; and the festivities include free cooking demonstrations and samples for visitors to enjoy as they take in the atmosphere provided by musicians and entertainers.
As the day comes to an end, the Mardi Gras Parade will begin at the historic and beautiful courthouse. Composed of classic cars, over the top floats full of enthusiastic locals dressed in their best Mardi Gras attire; tossing beads, treats, and other treasures, the parade promises to entertain spectators young and old.
This year’s event will take place on February 23, starting with food and fun at 2pm in Palestine’s Historic Main Street District.
