Second Saturday at Mardi Gras! Galveston

Andie Faulkner, 11, calls out for beads while watching the Z Krewe 26th Z Processional on the second Saturday of Mardi Gras Galveston 2020 festivities in downtown Galveston.


A downtown business owner can’t stop the city of Galveston from closing streets and using hotel occupancy tax revenues for the island’s Mardi Gras festivities, an appeals court ruled Thursday.

Yay! Let's have a drama free Mardi Gras!

I think if this were brought to vote of Strand business owners, Mr. Flores would find himself in a very small minority. It helps the island over all via tourism and being a Crewe member? We have a right to enjoy our city celebration too.

I too look forward to a drama free event.

Mr.Flores KNEW about downtown events before he chose to put his businesses in..... then decided he would change things AFTER the fact . Thank goodness he was unsuccessful.
