Bossier City is the place to be.  After all the major Mardi Gras parades are done, you can wrap up Mardi Gras season at a Fat Tuesday Festival.  The festival will be held in the East Bank District located in downtown Bossier near Horseshoe Casino. Organizers say the event is fun for the entire family with live music, face painting, food trucks and more fun activities for the entire family. BeauJax Crafthouse located in the district will be adding to the party with Shreveport's Second Line Brass Band and of course crawfish and cold drinks.

The festival is set for Tuesday, March 5th from 4 pm - 7 pm.  Admission is free as well as parking.  If you have a good time, you can plan on returning to the district while visiting the new East Bank Market.  The festival will also be the kickoff to the new market which will be held every Tuesday in March, April, and May from 4 pm -7 pm with local vendors activities for the family.
