Encounter.Fat Tuesday: Mardi Gras

  • McKenna residence 203 Braybarton Blvd Steubenville, OH, 43952 United States (map)

Come to celebrate the end of carnival (Carnival comes from the Latin words carne vale, meaning "farewell to the flesh=meat.") on that great Fat Tuesday when we MUST eat donuts, king cake and other fried pastries before Ash Wednesday. 

Wear green (faith), purple (justice) or gold (royal), Mardi Gras masks and beads. Bring your traditional Shrove Tuesday food (pancakes, eggs, buns, breads, faworki, donuts, king cakes, cheeses, waffles, pączki, crepes, quiche, cupcakes) and drinks. This is family friendly event. 

Music: New Orlean Jazz for the old and connoisseurs and Brazilian Samba and Rumba for the young and restless.
