Mardi Gras at Farmers Market
Courtesy Farmers Market.
Tourists and hipsters alike can enjoy the 24th annual Mardi Gras celebration at the original Farmers Market.

It's Mardi Gras weekend, but you're having a seriously hard time deciding whether to toss some beads or to play toss with Fido. Do both at the original Farmers Market with their annual Mardi Gras celebration. The fun begins with the Mutti Gras Pet Parade & Costume Contest at the Market Plaza. Pups, and the occasional cat, parade along the plaza in costume and are then judged by the crowd. A King and Queen are then crowned in categories of small, medium, and large, and are awarded prizes from the Dog Bakery.

The Mardi Gras Ranch Party kicks off on the West Patio with music from Eddie Baytos & the Nervis Bros (who'll return on Fat Tuesday). Seafood and gumbo ya ya, jumbalaya, Cajun meat loaf, blackened chicken, beignets, po'boys, and other traditional New Orleans food will be available throughout.
