MAGIC HAT PRESENTS MARDI GRAS 2019
If you were following my Instagram stories last night you might have seen a bit about an event I attended at the Magic Hat Artifactory. During the event we were given the lowdown on the 24th annual Magic Hat Mardi Gras Weekend, which will take place March 29th through March 31st. Since so many of my readers are from Vermont or nearby - and I would love to meet all of you at this event! - I decided to write up a little bit about the events that will be happening over the weekend. Plus, this will make it easier for everyone attending to plan out their partying!
All of the festivities this year will be held on Church Street from 1:30PM - 7PM. In the past, a parade featuring floats from many of the local businesses and organizations was the main focus of the weekend. However, this year, Magic Hat will be hosting a series of performances, events and live music acts. Some of the amazing performers that have been announced are Kung Fu, Escort, Vundabar and Bonerama. You will definitely want to check out the Magic Hat website to purchase your tickets to these events! Here is the full schedule for the weekend:
