The fest coincides with the Fourth of July every year. The four-day party starts with todays parade and the crowning of the Mardi Gras queen. Carnival games, kiddie rides, and live music are on tap. Plus, theres plenty of food and raffles to keep you busy.
Tonights celebration culminates in a huge fireworks show. Its a nice way to celebrate America in the summer and on the beach, says Cardina. Fun is encouraged, but we control the scene so things dont get too crazy.
July 4-8, 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
