When you stay at the Pacific Inn San Diego this February, be sure to take advantage of one of the most anticipated events in the city. Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp Quarter is one of the most popular events in San Diego and returns to the city for the party of the year. The annual event will be held on February 6th from 5pm until midnight, which means guests will enjoy the ultimate block party featuring the Big Easy Parade, and talented performers all night long.
Voted one of the top ten Mardi Gras events to attend in the world by USA Today, this event allows both locals and visitors to dress up in dramatic costumes and masks while enjoying the New Orleans feel of the Gaslamp Quarter. Guests will enjoy the energetic nightlife scene including popular bars, VIP venues, and delicious food in the area.
The Silent Disco stage will be set up at 6th and G Street where two DJs will battle over two separate frequencies to capture the crowd’s attention. The Brazilian Arts Stage on 4th and F Street will include exhilarating Brazilian performances by San Diego artists who will paint amazing art pieces as the music plays. Visit the EDM Stage to enjoy intoxicating electronic music including BASS and beats on the stage. For those with more mainstream tastes, Live Music Stage by Tin Roof will feature a number of big country and blues bands that will get the night started on 4th and G Street.
The parade will be one of the highlights of the event and will take place at 9pm. With extravagant floats and over 100 volunteers tossing beads to enthusiastic partygoers, it’s not hard to see why this event is so popular.
