Laissez les bon temps rouler, or in English, let the good times roll! Asheville has a special affinity for New Orleans culture. We may not have voodoo dolls at our gift shops, but we do love a good party and any excuse to dress up in lavish costumes.
Mardi Gras events are planned all next week starting with the annual Mardi Gras parade on Sunday, March 6 at 3PM. This family friendly event promising to be a fantastic spectacle in the streets of downtown Asheville, complete with beads. An after party is planned at Pack's Tavern.
Fat Tuesday, March 8 you will find a number of celebrations around the area including events at Barley's Taproom, Jack of the Wood and Ed Boudreaux's Bayou BBQ. Come join in on the fun.
