However, Galveston, TX has become known as the next best celebration around, and now North Texas is making a push to enter the conversation. 

Mardi Gras, Texas Style is entering is 16th year in existence and is planning to put in Dallas' most extravagant celebration to date on Saturday, February 18th. 20 bands will be playing on five stages that day (rain or shine) with mixed drinks, authentic cultural experiences and a VIP tent to round out what should be a great event.

That same evening, the 21 and over crowd can attend the OCarnivale Mardi Gras Ball at the Kesler in Dallas. This legendary music venue will host three bands, a Creole buffet, dancing, beads and costumes. Proceeds from this exciting event will go directly to funding the Oak Cliff Mardi Gras Parade the following Sunday. Here you can find all the pertinent information. 

For more chances to celebrate with food, drinks, beads and music you can check out Bitter Sister's Brewery, Oak Highlands Brewery, and the Mardi Gras Dog Parade in downtown McKinney.
