The Wharf again brings New Orleans to DC with a Mardi Gras with a free community extravaganza featuring an awesome parade down Wharf Street, a dance party with live music, and of course fireworks later in the evening. The event begins on Saturday, February 22, 2020, at 4 pm and goes until about 7 pm.
The Wharf Mardi Gras parade starts at 4 o’clock and it will be led by the all women’s drum group called Batalá, stilt walkers, high school marching bands, and appearances by the Mardi Gras king and queen.
Just around 6:30 PM fireworks will begin, so don’t forget to look toward the sky for the evening’s finale.
The event is free and open to all ages, I strongly suggest getting there early for a great spot, and available underground parking.
More promotions will be announced soon!
