Mardi Gras 2012 in Concrete

(posted 2.18.12)

Got the winter doldrums? Shake them off with the 5th annual Mardi Gras celebration in Concrete.

Hosted by Concrete Chamber of Commerce, the event is slated for Feb. 18 at 3 p.m., and will be held on Main Street and Concrete Town Center.

“It’s a great excuse to dress funny and dance in the street,” said Valerie Stafford, president of the Concrete Chamber of Commerce.

The parade lineup begins at 2 p.m. near the Concrete Post Office, in preparation for the 3 p.m. start. The parade route ends in Town Center, where parade participants and spectators will gather for a street party. The Concrete High School band is expected to perform, and the Encore Fitness Zumba Team will lead the dancing.

There is no fee to enter the parade, and it will be held rain or shine. Everyone is encouraged to join in the fun.
