Mardi Gras Crawl on The Boulevard – Feb 23
Join us for the third annual Boulevard Mardi Gras Crawl in North Park on Sunday, Feb. 23. The travelling party, led by a festive New Orleans-style brass band, will include stops at a diverse mix of local businesses, with drink and food specials and other fun activities along the way.
Festivities will kick off at 12 p.m. in the parking lot for The Beer Igniter (3052 El Cajon Blvd.), where Folk Art Rare Records will be spinning and food and drinks will be available from Pariah Brewing, JuneShine (hard kombucha) and Shrimp Heads (Cajun seafood). Guests will be able to purchase Boulevard Tickets at this location to enjoy $2, $4 and $6 specials along the crawl route.
At 1:30 p.m., the Euphoria Brass Band will begin leading party guests down El Cajon Boulevard, making stops to explore local businesses such as Collins & Coupe (cocktail provisions), Café Madeline (French café), Medina Kitchen (Moroccan Baja restaurant), The Barn, Gilly’s Bar and Tacos La Mexcla (Mexican food truck).
Around 3 p.m., revelers will arrive at the Crawl’s final destination, the historic Lafayette Hotel (2223 El Cajon Blvd.), where the party will continue with more live music, featuring Captain Morgan Lee, drinks and dancing until 5 p.m.
County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher (District 4) and State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (District 80) will serve as the event’s Grand Marshals.
