Laissez les bons temps rouler! It's time to celebrate our third annual Mardi Gras Masquerade. This year, we have two safe virtual ways to join the masquerade.

Join us online for a week of special cocktail hours, celebrate Mardi Gras from the comfort of home with a special online masquerade online bash, and - if you'd like - kick off the New Year with a Virtual 5K that includes a 30 day training plan, suggested historic routes, a special race shirt and packet, prizes for best-dressed runner, and a Mardi Gras race day playlist.

Plus: nominate and vote for our 2021 Mardi Gras court. This year's event celebrates the relationship between preservation and sustainability.
