Distinctive Mardi Gras in Shakopee, many more activities to come

Mardi Gras in Shakopee was a day to have fun by parading around, collecting beads, photo shoots, donuts at lunch and of course a dance, said Program Manager Ali Brown.

Participants discussed “Fat Tuesday” in New Orleans watched a few real Mardi Gras parades, she said.

With no lack of things to celebrate and do, Shakopee was prepping for Pi Day on March 14 and a “Crazy Sock Day,” as well as a “Virtual Vacation Day.” Watch for updates later.
