One of the most anticipated festivals on the west coast, Gaslamp Mardi Gras will be returning on Fat Tuesday, February 21, 2012 from 6:00 PM to Midnight and is anticipated to have over 40,000 in attendance. This year’s Mardi Gras will build on the success of last year’s revamped event with five stages featuring live music performances, special guest appearances and the world’s top Electronica, Dubstep and House DJs. Mardi Gras will feature a grand parade that travels straight down Fifth Avenue at 9:00 PM, as well as, multi-dimensional street performers that will entertain on over 16 blocks throughout the Gaslamp Quarter. Cutting edge, lighting, sound and visuals will enhance the venue as they draw the Mardi Gras revelers inside the pulsating walls of the Historic Gaslamp Quarter streets. Tickets to this Mardi Gras madness are only $25 dollars in advance and $30 at the door; attendees must be 21 years or older and have a valid ID to enter. Proceeds will go to the Gaslamp Quarter Association which markets the Gaslamp District all year round.
