Catch the spirit of Mardi Gras season during the Shreveport-Bossier Mardi Gras Pop-Up Party at event1013 in downtown Plano, Texas, 7-10 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 9! This free party will celebrate the Carnival season in Shreveport-Bossier with live dance music by Tipsey the Band, free gumbo from Chef Henry Griffin of Shreveport's Creole Cafe, a king cake tasting featuring king cakes from three of Shreveport-Bossier’s top bakeries, Mardi Gras beads, door prizes, a cash bar, and more. One lucky party attendee will win the Mardi Gras experience of a lifetime – the opportunity to ride on a float during the enormous Krewe of Highland Parade XXIV on Sunday, March 3! 

The Shreveport-Bossier Mardi Gras Pop-Up Party is presented by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau in partnership with event1013 and the Historic Downtown Plano Arts District.
