Apartments in Atlanta, like those at Savannah Midtown, are the perfect place for a quality home and convenient to all that the city has to offer. Along with a well-planned layout and magnificent views of downtown Atlanta, it's also the perfect place to get a head start for the Midtown Mardi Gras Block Party!
Mardi Gras History
New Orleans is known for its Mardi Gras celebration, and rightly so. In 1699, two French explorers, Sieur de Bienville and Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville, landed near to what would become New Orleans. To acknowledge their landing, the crew celebrated and named the spot Point du Mardi Gras. The celebration is still going on annually and that includes the block party this year in Midtown Atlanta.
Midtown Mardi Gras Block Party Events
Take part in the Mardi Gras Block Party and celebrate as they do in the Big Easy with food, drinks, music, costumes, and beads. More than 17 local clubs, bars, and restaurants will be participating to create a lively party experience in the heart of Midtown.
A Mardi Gras party isn't complete without a costume. Don your most colorful attire in the primary colors associated with Fat Tuesday — purple, green, and gold. Put on several strands of celebratory beads and an outrageous Mardi Gras mask before heading out. Invite your friends along and make your way to Atlanta's own version of Fat Tuesday.
Make the rounds of the participating bars, restaurants, and clubs and savor the flavor of New Orleans Atlanta-style, with appetizers, discounted food specials, assorted comp, and jello shots, live music and DJs and more! Throughout the night, things get ”jazzed up” with live music from the Wasted Potential Brass Band.
Tickets are $30 per person, which includes food and drink specials at participating businesses and traditional Mardi Gras beads. The party is scheduled for Saturday, February 9th, from 7 p.m. – 2 a.m., rain or shine.
