The Lakeshore Mardi Gras Committee is pleased to present the 12th Annual Lakeshore Mardi Gras! Last year more than 10,000 guests attended the event to listen to the bands, participate in the activities or just have fun at the fair.

Singles, couples, and families will enjoy the refreshing open-air ambience of the Lakeshore Mardi Gras in a natural park setting in the heart of the beautiful Lakeshore community. Taking place over a three-day period from July 31st to August 3th, the community-based event draws its inspiration from the world famous Mardi Gras held annually in New Orleans.

Last year the event was a huge success and this year promises to be bigger and better!
