In 2018 we began a new tradition at Market Square that proved to be wildly successful beyond expectations – Mardi Gras on the night before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.
This year Mardi Gras will be celebrated on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. in Geneva Hall. Mardi Gras at Market Square features a catered-in dinner and rousing music from the Ben Mauger Band!
There will be games and crafts for the children and Tom, Kelly, and a few of their friends will be tending bar (non-alcoholic). No doubt dancing will break out, too, and it’ll be an overall good-time Market Square party before Ash Wednesday and Lent begin the next day.
**Due to the cost of our Mardi Gras food and the necessity to pre-order, tickets must be purchased, paid for, and received in the church office (or Sunday offering plate) no later than Monday, February 17. Checks may be made payable to Market Square Presbyterian Church with a notation – Mardi Gras – on the memo line. Ticket price per person is $13 for adults and $7 for children 10 and under.**
