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.
Tybee will be dressed in an array of purple, gold and green
flags depicting the Tybee Island Mardi Gras celebration. Mardi Gras Tybee will
include the Mardi Gras Tybee Parade, the Mardi Gras Tybee Street Party
featuring free live entertainment and more.
