We all know that New Orleans is a happening place to be on Fat Tuesday each spring. But did you know you you can experience all the fun of Mardi Gras on the beautiful South Carolina coast? Oh yes, it’s true! On Tuesday, March 5, head on over to the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk to take part in Marshi Gras, a fun-filled annual event that brings the festivities of Mardi Gras to the Grand Strand.
All the pomp and flair of Bourbon Street will be on display along the Marshwalk as Marshi Gras kicks off at Bovine’s at 7 PM with a huge parade. The parade consists of hundreds of participants dressed up in festive costumes and is open to everyone. If you’re looking to participate in the $1,000 costume contest, you can register at Bovine’s between 5-6:35 PM. During the parade, participants will strut their way along the Marshwalk while a live band plays jazzy Mardi Gras tunes to give the event a New Orleans feel. All the restaurants of the Marshwalk will be handing out beads and masks, and if you work up a thirst be sure to stop in and grab a Hurricane or two to get into the spirit of Marshi Gras!
