One of the most anticipated festivals on the west coast, Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp will be returning on Fat Tuesday, February 12, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to midnight and is anticipated to have over 40,000 in attendance.
Mardi Gras will feature a grand parade that travels straight down Fifth Avenue at 9:00 p.m. as well as multi-dimensional street performers that will entertain on over 16 blocks throughout the Gaslamp Quarter. Cutting edge lighting, sound and visuals will enhance the venue as they draw the Mardi Gras revelers inside the pulsating walls of the Historic Gaslamp Quarter streets. Attendees must be 21 years or older and have a valid ID to enter. Proceeds will go to the Gaslamp Quarter Association which markets the Gaslamp District all year round.
