Festival: Parade

Celebrate Mardi Gras Parade


Tuesday Feb 12, 2013 (5:30pm)


Place Pigalle

Octavia St and Hayes St



Sure, San Francisco's annual Carnaval festivities happen in May, but that doesn't mean that today isn't officially Fat Tuesday. Celebrate with the rest of the world's Mardi Gras observers by heading over to Place Pigalle (at Octavia and Hayes), where you'll find a street party getting down to the brass sounds of Jazz Mafia, the North Beach Brass Band, and everyone's favorite marching band to hate, the Stanford Marching Band. Afterward, stick around for the 17th Annual Mardi Gras Ball at Brick & Mortar Music Hall, where you can expect a lineup of live entertainment and N'awlins cuisine. Feeling ready for Lent yet?
