Tybee Mardi Gras

13 Feb

It’s almost time for the fourth annual Tybee Island Mardi Gras celebration!

Mardi Gras is a celebration that traditionally falls between the Christian observed holiday of Epiphany and culminates the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras in French, translates to “Fat Tuesday” and is the last day to indulge in your favorite rich and fatty foods before the Lent fast begins… but if you know anything about Tybee Island, there is always cause for celebration and festivities. The 2012 celebration will be held this coming Friday & Saturday, February 17th & 18th.

The official Tybee Mardi Gras kicks off with a Masquerade Ball at Fannie’s on The Beach. Tickets can be purchased in advance and the party starts at 8 PM. Then on Saturday the Mardi Gras Street Party starts at noon on Tybrisia Street and the Parade commences at 2 PM.
