The Big Easy meets Burlington at the 22nd annual Magic Hat Mardi Gras Parade. A wintertime staple, this N’awlins-style celebration pulls thousands to the Queen City’s downtown area for an all-out party. The Fat Tuesday-inspired festivities kick off with live music by PitchBlak Brass Band and Big Mean Sound Machine at the top of Church Street. Costumed carousers can then make strides — and show off their themed threads — in the #9 Fun Run, an all-ages 0.9-mile jog hosted by Super Troopers’ Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme. Finally, beads fly as themed floats roll down Main Street, drumming up support for the Vermont Foodbank. A high-octane concert in City Hall Park by rockers White Denim of Austin, Texas, rounds out the revelry.
