Those who missed out on Mardi Gras festivities in March will get another chance in May.
Baltimore County government is partnering with WTMD to host a free “Mini Mardi Gras” celebration on May 14 at the Lurman Woodland Theatre in Catonsville.
Rufus Roundtree & Da B’more Brass Factory will perform New Orleans funk and jazz music live. The event is part of WTMD’s Saturday Morning Tunes concert series and is welcome to music lovers of all ages.
“We already have Christmas in July,” said Saturday Morning Tunes producer and host Sam Sessa. “Why not Mardi Gras May? We were thrilled when Baltimore County approached us about making this show free, and we can’t wait to throw a party in such a scenic outdoor space.”
Admission to the concert is free, but attendees must register in advance at wtmd.org.
Doors will open at 9:30 a.m. and the show will begin at 10 a.m.
Attendees will receive beads, crowns and other accessories to round out their Mardi Gras looks.
“We are thrilled to partner with WTMD to bring the magic of live music to scenic Lurman Woodland Theatre in Catonsville,” Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski said in a statement. “This festive show will provide a great opportunity for people across our region to enjoy free, family-friendly entertainment and experience this beautiful outdoor venue right in the heart of ‘Music City Maryland.’”
