The 4th Annual Mardi Gras Celebration (February 18, 2012, 6:00 p.m.) will include the Mardi Gras Parade and Mardi Gras Tybee Street Party, featuring live entertainment.
Join parade watchers on the side of the road, and beg for trinkets. “Throw me something, Mister” is a phrase you can hear over and over again. Rewards are typically beads, doubloons, cups, stuffed animals or small toys. The most prized color beads to receive are the Mardi Gras colors — purple (for justice), green (for faith), and gold (for power).
