On a gorgeous Denver day, the family-friendly Mardi Gras celebration featured live music by the Tivoli Brass Band and entertainment by Handsome Little Devils - including juggling, acrobatics, stilt walkers and a hula hoop competition. The highlight of the afternoon was definitely the “Petite Parade,” where nine local contestants showed off their homemade floats – the only rule was that they must use a shoebox as the base. Everyone got involved as the group paraded around the block and enjoyed a dance party in the activated Alley.
