This year, Mardi Gras happens to be during School Vacation Week, so Lat43, Minglewood & YMCA have cooked up a grand family party and concert to benefit the Y Teens trip to New Orleans in April.
The fun begins at noon at Latitude 43 with balloons, masks, beads, family style Cajun specials and more.
Then Charles Neville joins Henri Smith and his band New Orleans Friends & Flavours at 7pm at Minglewood. Concert Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. If you liked them at Celebrate Gloucester, you love this up close, personal chance to see them again.
10% of all proceeds from concert tickets, food and drink will be donated to the Y Teens Rebuild New Orleans III trip. Plus, the YMCA will sponsor barrel raffles featuring great prizes.
