Mardi Gras will be celebrated Vegas style on Saturday February 25 right on the Las Vegas strip. Harrah’s, O’Sheas and The Flamingo Las Vegas will be hosting a Mardi Gras celebration outdoors between the Carnaval Court, O’Sheas and Margaritaville. The Las vegas Mardi Gras party will begin at 4 p.m. and wind down around Midnight.

Look for the party to kick off with a lively parade starting at Harrah’s, moving past O’Sheas and ending at the Flamingo. The vibrant Mardi Gras-style parade will make it’s way between the three hotels every half hour from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. joined by a Dixie Band, Harrah’s and Flamingo showgirls, greeter girls, a baton twirler and Margaritaville stilt-walkers.

In true New Orleans fashion, showgirls and greeters will toss ceremonial beads to spectators. Give-a-ways and coupons for Southern Comfort drink specials at Carnaval Court, O’Sheas and Margaritaville will also be distributed. Specialty cocktails created just for Mardi Gras include cleverly themed libations like the Southern Comfort “Harrahcane” and “Southern Lemonade.”

After the parades end, the celebration will continue with live entertainment at Carnaval Court, O’Sheas and Margaritaville. Guests must be 21 years of age or older.

Carnaval court is located right next to Harrah’s and is the perfect place to spend an evening listening to live music and being entertained by some of the friendliest bartenders on the strip.
