Mardi Gras weekend has finally arrived – so cut the King Cake and let’s have some fun.  The big celebration will be downtown, but if that isn’t your thing, we have some celebrations planned in the East Loop.

Kick off the weekend by attending the RAC opening reception of Latinicidad, which starts at 5:30, and then head over to Serendipity Gallery to meet Zachary Smithey and see his amazing work.  Finish the evening with a late dinner or drinks at any of the great places in the Loop.

Sunday there will be a Community Carnaval Event at the RAC from 3 to 6 pm.  Serendipity will be open as well and we’ve planned some fun activities for the kids including face painting and balloon art.

Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe.
