The 21st Annual Gloucester Mardi Gras, named the top event in NC for the month of February by Our State magazine, will take place on Saturday, Feb. 9, at 476 Pigott Rd, Gloucester, NC 28528 from 11 - 6pm. Sponsored by the Unknown Tongues Cajun-Zydeco band, Gloucester Mardi Gras features dancing to live music all day, including a Cajun dance and children's King and Queen march and bead toss around 3pm. Gumbo and fried turkey is served by early afternoon, announced by a "Fool's Procession." Feathered mask and hat-making is available for kids and grownups alike. Costumes are welcome!
