2018 Mardi Gras Tybee
February 10th, 2018
Tybee is a natural setting for the Mardi Gras event due to its unique character and fun-loving residents.
The event will encompass the traditions of Mardi Gras, an event with origins dating back to the ancient Romans and carried on today in cities such as Mobile, Alabama and New Orleans, Louisiana. Mardi Gras is held on the last day before the start of Lent.
