MardiGrass has always been about trust but it doesn’t happen all by itself. Months of preparation and ground work go into the weekend so the village as a whole benefits as well as the thousands of visitors. We’d like it to happen in such a way that everyone who attends it has an uplifting experience. Accordingly, the MardiGrass asks that everyone understands the critical importance of buying armbands. Without you buying armbands we are history. Some businesses even give preferential service to armband wearers and we support that. We need your support. Please buy one!!
