Let's Do Mardi Gras!

 
Fat Tuesday!
Mardi Gras!
Shrove Tuesday! (Shrove-let's eat pancakes)
The Day Before Lent Begins!
 
Whatever you call it, it's a blast.  Sandpiper's is not to be outdone by a few revelers in Louisiana!
 
Feb. 9 join in our very own Mardi Gras Parade and celebration.
 
The Parade, 5pm:
Line up your golf cart. your bicycle, or tricycle at 4:45pm by the pavilion. (Prizes for best decorated cart, bike and trike).
  Walkers also are encouraged to parade.  The parade will go onto every street so gather your neighbors and lawn chairs to cheer on the carts, musicians (Jazz Saxes), walkers and cycles. The route is about a mile long and ends at the pavilion.
 (Do the whole route or just a bit)
 
OK, you've paraded and now you are famished and thirsty!
 
Super Happy Hour, 6pm:
Beer provided but bring finger food.  No electricity available, no table service...just your fingers.
Lot's of live music with Sandpiper's Jam Bands performing until the beer runs out at 10pm.
