Live Like a Local: Mardi Gras on Tybee!

     It’s that time again…time to say goodbye to the chilly temperatures of winter. What, you ask, is the best way to do that? Well, the only way Tybee does anything…throw a party!
     Join all of Tybee this weekend for the island’s 3rd Annual Mardi Gras celebration! This party will include all the traditions of Mardi Gras, an event that dates back to the ancient Romans. Tybee will be decked out in her finest for the occasion! The fun starts this Friday, March 3rd, with the Fantasy Masquerade Ball at Frannie’s on the Beach. Make sure to get your tickets and don your best glitz and glamor for this party! There will be prizes for the best dressed, not to mention the crowning of the king and queen!

     If you can’t make it Friday, no worries! The celebrations continue Saturday, March 4th. Join us for the Mardi Gras Parade at 1 pm down Butler Avenue, followed by a street party, free live music from great local bands, and a bazaar themed party at the pavilion until 6 pm.
     This amazing event is, of course, put on by the oh-so-awesome local non-profit group, Tybeefest. For more information on this and more up coming events, make sure to visit their website. Please, make plans to celebrate with all of us this weekend…Tybee’s Mardi Gras is a not-to-be-missed event!
