1) It’s free to attend. Yes, you read it correctly, FREE, as in no charge for admission. Woot Woot!

2) There will be LIVE MUSIC, and all participating bars will have specials on Little Kings and Hurricanes.

3) There’s a parade! The Grand Parade will be Saturday the 25th at 8 o'clock.

The festivities actually begin tonight (Wednesday 2/22) at 7 o’clock with a Hurricane Contest held at Village Pub.

So BYOB (Bring Your Own Beads) and make plans to attend this local Mardi Gras 2017! (Don’t worry if your bead collection is running low – Cappel's will be selling beads on the street before and during the parade).

Be sure to use #NKY and #LovTheCov so we can share in your adventures. Have fun!
