Mardi Gras in May Block Party
May 23, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Who says Mardi Gras season is over?? It’s never too late to party Louisiana-style. Join Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau and Plano Magazine at The District at The Shops at Willow Bend on May 23 from 7:30-10 p.m. for the Mardi Gras in May Block Party.
This free, family-friendly, outdoor event will bring Louisiana vibes with live music by Shreveport jazz band Alter Ego, beads and King Cake for everyone, plenty of dancing, a chance to win door prizes, plus a cash bar. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of summer.
The Mardi Gras in May Block Party happens the same night as the Plano Magazine Beer Walk inside The Shops at Willow Bend. So if you want to get the party started a little early, you can buy a $14 ticket to the Beer Walk at planobeerwalk.com. The Beer Walk is a craft beer sampling event with over 30 different craft brews, and guests under the age of 21 are also welcome to visit the shops alongside those participating in the Beer Walk.
Closest event parking at The District is outside Neiman Marcus or Dillards on the ground level.
