Thank you for a spectacular day! Everything was awesome!! Our second year living here and attending this event. Loved it!

So much FUN we had, LOVED how family friendly EVERYTHING was! Music was great, cute puppet show that my daughters enjoyed & they were HAPPY girls that came home with TONS of beads!

New Bern Mardi Gras was awesome! Good food, music, parade, road race, vendors. Costumes were great.

It was a great time and we loved the music!

Mardi Gras in New Bern is the BEST!!

It was great seeing the community have fun!

It was so fun! Family friendly, great music and food! And all in our beautiful Ghent community.

It was my first time going and I had such a great time!

Was great to go to an event that was handicapped friendly. We met a lot of handicapped folks today and it was a pleasure.


We are thankful these businesses and neighbors who see value in our awesome community and events like ours.
