Mardi Gras...Saratoga Style

Here's a fun weekend activity for you and the family.

The Third Annual
Saratoga Springs Mardi Gras Festival!

SUNDAY, APRIL 26, 2009

The 'kick-off' event is on Saturday night, but you have to order tickets, make sure your kids are well behaved..blah, blah, blah, so you probably won't want to do that... What you will want to do is get there on Sunday when your kids can get their faces painted, make masks, see a parade, indulge in a real-life cajun cook-off, and listen to live music under a big tent. Summer is here people! (positive thinking technique)

Here is a 'kid friendly schedule' from their website:
