5 Best Kept Secrets of Gaslamp Mardi Gras…Revealed!
After 23 years, Gaslamp Mardi Gras continues to be at the forefront of creative surprises for attendees, making it the preferred Mardi Gras hot-spot to spend Fat Tuesday, February 28th. Three stages of music fire up at 5 pm and run non-stop through midnight, with the world famous parade stepping off at 9pm. Hip hop legend Warren G, known for his hit “Regulate”, will be headlining the event alongside a long list of talented performers and entertainers.
Dine out and grab a Food & Beverage Package
Food and drink packages feature a combination ticket that includes admission along with a $30 food/beverage credit at participating venues. These packages are just $55 for GA and $100 for VIP. What are the perks of the Food and Beverage Package, you may ask? This ticket offering is the only Fat Tuesday offering that doesn’t increase in price as the other tickets jump up the price tier! That means that you can still take advantage of a $25 General Admission ticket and $70 VIP ticket, regardless of current ticket price, all while enjoying a $30 food and drink credit at one of the 17 participating restaurants (Full list at sdmardigras.com).
