Taking It Big Easy

Break out the beads! The Magic Hat Mardi Gras Parade turns 20 this year, and a street party in its honor transforms downtown Burlington into the N’awlins of the North. The Queen City’s take on “fat Tuesday” festivities benefits the Vermont Foodbank, kicking off with performances by Sambatucada! and the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. Revelers refuel with bowls of gumbo at the Winter Bazaar, then check out eye-catching attire at the King and Queen of Mardi Gras costume contest. At 3 p.m., a procession of themed floats rolls down Main Street, where over-the-top designs draw crowds by the thousands.
