Where to Celebrate Mardi Gras 2018 in Denver

Lent is fast approaching on the Christian calendar and that means only one thing:  You’ve got to live it up before you give it up. Mardi Gras, AKA, Fat Tuesday, happens on Tuesday, February 13 this year. Traditionally associated with New Orleans, Mardi Gras is also popular in Denver. So if you want to let the good times roll, enjoy these fun parties in the Mile High City.
