Area Mardi Gras celebrations continue today, with Findlay Market hosting its annual free shindig during the day. Live music and other festivities kick off at 10 a.m., with performances by Lagniappe, Robin Lacy & DeZydeco and The Medicine Men as well as the famous crawfish boil in the capable hands of Cynthia Brown. Covington's MainStrasse district hosts a parade, live music and lots of spicy Louisiana food starting at 8 p.m. See previews of both events here.
I'm in New Orleans for a long weekend, and my parade rolls at 4 p.m. I can't wait!
Enjoy your Saturday.
