Venice Mardi Gras

Today, February 18th hit the Venice Boardwalk at noon and join the Venice Mardi Gras parade. Hosted by Miss Jessica and The Gumbo Brothers, the annual event is now in its 14th year. This year the theme is Circ du L.A.

Meet at 11:00am in the parking lot at Rose Ave., and Ocean Front Walk. Parking is $10. For $5 donation you can grab beads before you hit the Boardwalk.

Lead by Miss Jessica, the parade will set off at 12 noon sharp. The Venice Electric Light Parade will round-up those at the rear. Be sure to hang around for the after parade party at Larry’s.

To get an idea what you’re in for check out these pictures, taken by Venice Paparazzi, of last year’s event.
