Get ready to collect some beads and check out all of the amazing floats along Franklin Street this Saturday for the Franklin Street Mardi Gras Grand Parade! The parade will be full of individuals and businesses (including GBF!) and we'll be tossing beads as we roll along Franklin Street. The parade kicks off at 4pm but you can get in on the pre-parade party at Lamasco's from 2p-4p. Afterward, the part continues beginning at 5pm at Pistons.

If that's not enough Mardi Gras fun for ya, check out the Franklin Street Mardi Gras Pub Crawl this Friday, March 1st & Saturday March 2nd beginning at 6pm. You can pick up an armband for $10 at any of the following Franklin Street locations:

  • Franklin Street Tavern
  • The Corner Bar
  • Leroys Tavern
  • Pistons Bar And Grill
  • Gerst Haus
  • Sportsman's Grille & Billiards
  • Smitty's Italian Steakhouse
  • Lamasco Bar and Grill

That armband will provide cover for entry to the participating bars as well as access to free T.E.D. (Trolley of Evansville Districts) Rides, free cab rides home, and access to a Scavenger Hunt - a chance to win trip to the Big Easy!


Laissez les bon temps rouler!
