Bishop Arts Mardi Gras Parade

  • Feb 10, 2013 · 3:30 PM

Update your rsvp if you will be meeting up and participating with Urban Bohemian

We will meet in front of Bolsa at 3:30.

Parking: Be very careful where you park! Do not park in any business parking lot! You will need to park in the neighborhood and more likely than not have to walk to Bolsa. Last year, there was plenty of neighborhood parking at 3 p.m.

You will have to park your car on the street in the nearby neighborhoods. Once we are organized in front of Bolsa, we will walk and find us a good spot to watch the parade.

You must be at this event on-time or it will be extremely, extremely hard to find us, so leave in plenty of time to drive around, find parking, and walk to the meeting location. It will get crowded, so you might want to arrive a little earlier and look around the shops until it is time to meet.

This is a simple, local-spin on a family holiday parade in a historic area. It is incredible opportunity to make some new friends.

“If you know me, you know that my favorite holiday is Mardi Gras!If you want a local twist on the festive holiday then this is your opportunity to go crazy for beads!” R. Mark

    I actually may attend but my house is closer to the start of the parade. More then likely I'll just walk over. Walking all the way to Bishop arts is a little too much of a trek.
