▬▬▬▬ ✪MORE ABOUT MARDi GRAS ✪ ▬▬▬▬
“Mardi Gras” is the French translation for “Fat Tuesday”. It refers to the “final day of indulgence” before the start of Lent, when faithful Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain luxuries for 40 days and 40 nights as a form of penitence.

San Diego, California is home to the one of the largest Mardi Gras celebrations in the world. The festivities kickoff in the famous Gaslamp Quarter on Saturday, Feb 6 (eve of Super Bowl 50) and continue through Fat Tuesday on Feb 9, 2016.

“SAN DIEGO FAT TUESDAY” (SDFT) is Southern California’s #1 Mardi Gras Party Hop. It is day when revelers from around the globe band together (known as “krewe”) to indulge in a “last hurrah” before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.
