Since you can’t make it to New Orleans for the real festivities, downtown Littleton is bringing Mardi Gras to you! The historic Main Street will turn into Bourbon Street from February 28th through March 1st. Ten businesses are opening their doors, and getting ready to celebrate this weekend.
This is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors! “Fat Tuesday” is a time of exuberance, and everything in abundance. Then comes Ash Wednesday when life supposed to slow down. The city makes a big deal out of this holiday with live bands, baubles and Louisiana-flavored food.
Start at Romano’s Italian Restaurant to enjoy jambalaya and gumbo; they will have some Southern music by the Bon Tee Cajun Band! Head to the west, where the Platte River Bar and Grill has some really dirty rice, and the Kenney Young Band. The fun never stops in Littleton, Reinke Bros. is providing all the beads you could want!
