“Mardi Gras” is the French translation for “Fat Tuesday”. It refers to the “final day of indulgence” before the start of Lent, when faithful Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain luxuries for 40 days and 40 nights as a form of penitence.

“Gaslamp Mardi Gras” is Southern California’s #1 Pre Mardi Gras Party Hop. It is a day when revelers from around the globe band together (known as “krewe”) to indulge in a “last hurrah" before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday.
