This past Saturday February 25 downtown Texarkana came to life with the Fifth Annual Mardi Gras celebration in downtown Texarkana. What a great turn out. It fun to watch this event get bigger and bigger every year.

There were lots of activities for people of all ages to enjoy, especially the kids.

One of my favorite events of the weekend was the Pet Parade. It was a small parade but fun. It was great to watch kids and adults alike have fun showing off their sweet pups. From little breeds to big breeds they were all decked out in Mardi Gras fashions and color.

Check out the video below and if you see someone you be sure to let them know.

Did you go to Mardi Gras downtown this weekend? What was your favorite part?
