Events: MainStrasse Mardi Gras

By Maija Zummo · February 9th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

So our football team didn’t make it to the Super Bowl. That’s OK. “Who Dat” sounded kind of like “Who Dey.” And we can still act like New Orleans, or better, with multiple Mardi Gras events.

That’s right, we have more than one. Apparently Cincinnatians love outdoor parties where they can take their shirts off for beads, even when it’s really cold out.

Covington's MainStrasse district is hosting its 14th annual Mardi Gras event 8 p.m.-1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. There will be a giant entertainment tent full of live music from the likes of Robin Lacy & DeZydeco and 4th Day Echo, lots of Cajun food booths and a Dunk-a-Cop booth to raise money for the Police Unity Tour.

And what Mardi Gras party would be complete without a parade? None. And MainStrasse has two: Friday night there’s a Big Head Parade and Saturday is the Grande Parade. Music starts after the parades both nights.

Admission is $15 in advance for both nights.
