Mardi Gras 2020

Are you getting ready to turn up on Fat Tuesday with Ja Rule? You don’t need to spend hundreds or live in New Orleans to truly experience the fun. We’re bringing the party to you on Tuesday, Feb. 25 at Centennial Park in downtown Fort Myers.

You don’t want to miss this party. Purchase tickets to the biggest party in Southwest Florida here!

We also want to help you put together a style to fit the Mardi Gras theme. So here are 10 must-have items that you should wear for the celebration!

Stick to the color theme

Whether you’re wearing a dress, suit or a t-shirt and jeans, make sure to stick with the traditional color theme: purple, green and gold. From here we can move forward to the fun part: accessories.


When people think of Mardi Gras, they think BEADS. You can get your hands on a bunch of colorful themed beads at your nearest Party City or dollar store. Just remember one thing: the more the merrier!


What’s a Mardi Gras party without masks? This is a staple and will take any outfit look PERFECT. Your masks should be decked in Mardi Gras basics: feathers, beads, jewels, ribbons, and sequins.


You’ll instantly feel like you’re in the Mardi Gras parade when you throw on a feather boa! You can find multicolor sectioned and mixed color boas on websites like Amazon.


Mardi Gras glasses will surely help you let the good time roll, plus what’s better than looking at the world through purple-colored glasses?


Are you a king, queen or joker? The right hat or tiara can define your Mardi gras character and can be the perfect addition to your costume. Check out Party City for fedora hats, plush Mardi Gras crowns, etc.


Mardi Gras is a great night to let your freak flag fly high! And what’s a better way to express your joy than with a bold makeup look? Stand out from the crowd with purple, green and yellow/gold color-blocked eye shadow, long lashes, and glitter eyebrows. Don’t forget to add a bright and shimmery lip color! Get inspired with many makeup tutorials on Youtube and Pinterest.

… It’s party time!

Now that you have your ensemble prepared, you’re ready for Southwest Florida’s biggest Fat Tuesday concert with Ja Rule. As the saying goes, Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler (Let the good times roll)!!
