Downtown Chandler will be transformed into the “Big Easy” for one magical night on Saturday Feb. 6, as the Downtown Chandler Community Foundation hosts its first Mardi Gras Festival.
The event will include a parade, street festival, strolling musicians, costume contest and the crowning of the Mardi Gras King and Queen. The reception and registration will kick off at 6 p.m. at di Sciacca. The parade will go from di Sciacca to the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort at approximately 7:30 p.m.
The resort is the site for the dinner, music and casino. VIP tickets are $100 and general admission tickets are $75. All proceeds from the event will go to the Downtown Chandler Community Foundation, which provides grants to nonprofits in the downtown area that meet critical community needs.
