Mardi Grass in Summit County 2012

Although we’re 1,300 miles from the French Quarter in New Orleans, Summit County still knows how to put on a party for Mardi Gras. Get over to Keystone early on February 21st for a Gumbo Cook-Off in River Run Village and crowd giveaways throughout the day. For Apr├Ęs ski entertainment Warren Station will host The New Orleans Suspects, a group of five musicians who create music that is firmly rooted in the modern New Orleans sound with compelling originals and tasteful covers. If you’re in Breckenridge the celebration kicks off on Saturday with the annual Bacchus Ball and continues through Tuesday with the Mardi Gras parade down Main Street. Grab your masks, boas and beads and get to Summit County to help celebrate!
