Celebrate Mardi Gras in League City this year with your family and four-legged friends! On Saturday, January 23,, join us at League Park for the first "Beads and Bark in the Park." Kids can decorate their bikes in Mardi Gras colors before they arrive, and then decorate a mask at the event (supplies will be provided). Then they'll march (or ride) in the parade, and toss beads to the crowd. There will also be a pet costume parade, Cajun food trucks, King cake, yard games, and music.
Safety precautions: Attendees will be encouraged to wear masks and social-distance at the event. Masks will be provided for those who need one. Activities will be spread out for social-distancing.
