Mardi Gras is back! The third annual event at local favourite Pistol Pete’s will be channelling New Orleans vibrations on Lt Malop St on Sunday 23 February, from midday to 8pm.
A celebration known for its loud music, costumes, decorations and general debauchery, this local version is a favourite free, family-friendly event that will take over the space between Shorts Place and Denny’s place, with Pistol Pete’s hosting the huge musical line up this year boasting the Big Brassy sounds of New Orleans.
A regular at Pistol Pete’s, Melbourne’s Steve Boyd’s Rum Reverie will lead the celebrations with their New Orleans swagger, alongside the likes of Hog Stompin’ Zydegators, Jules Boult & the Redeemers, Four Scoops, Crawfish Po’Boy, SpiderJazz and even Pistol Pete’s All Star 2nd Line. The streets of Geelong have never been so Brassy!
On top of this massive line-up, festival goers will also have the awesome variety of delicious food and beverages in the precinct available to them. Just a five minute walk from the Geelong train station and a whole lot of free parking at the Civic Carpark, there’s no reason not to gather your family and friends and head on in for a taste of New Orleans right here in the Geelong CBD.
Mark the date, get your beads ready and bring your friends down for a massive day of Cajun-inspired frivolities – and as they say, “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”.
Let the good times roll!
