Ramping Up for Fat Tuesday

Despite being faced with the coldest day of the year so far, the Mystic Krewe of Olympia Parade was an enormous success.  St. John’s Coffeehouse served hot drinks and food out of their window on Boston Street, and the local bars and restaurants featured food and drink specials.  The party kicked into second gear after the parade with live music at the Green Room and Columbia Street Tap Room.  With much of the party carrying into the morning, Covington proved once again that Mardi Gras isn’t just for New Orleans.

Tuesday’s parades have a great family atmosphere, starting off with the Lions Club Parade at 10 am and followed by the Mystic Krewe of Covington at 11 am. After the parades are over, be sure to check out Four Unplugged playing live at The Columbia Street Tap Room.
