What’s the meaning of Mardi Gras? 🎭
I've read a lot of versions but basically it is translated to Fat Tuesday, a day of merrymaking and indulgence before the Christian Lenten season starts. In many communities Mardi Gras is celebrated over days or weeks before Ash Wednesday - and this is called Carnival! So in the Carnival spirit and vibe we are having a community celebration.
If you are feeling in the mood to celebrate Mardi Gras and eat some delicious OKC food and Jitters Coffee Pub drinks come out to our community block party. We are also hosting a dry goods and canned goods drive for the North County Food Bank so bring your non perishables to the party!
O’side Mardi Gras Celebration on February 18, 2023 from 12PM to 5PM in the Jitters Parking Lot 510 N. Coast Highway in Oceanside.
