Starting February 27, 2019

March brings breezes loud and shrill, Stirs the dancing daffodil.  -Sara Coleridge (1802–1852) English author and translator

The coming week ushers in the Month of March, as well as Fat Tuesday (or Big Boned Tuesday for our sensitive friends), also known as Mardi Gras Day or Shrove Day. It's a celebration and the opportunity to enjoy that favorite food or snack, as the following day is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, a long fasting period for Christians. So, Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler! The first-ever Easton-Phillipsburg Mardi Gras Parade comes to town on Saturday, with attendees urged to be participants - not just spectators - and dance along, and it's followed by a Taste of South Main and other activities. Read about it here. Don't miss the other Mardi Gras events found below, the final performances of An Enemy of the People, music, comedy, and more. Happy Mardi Gras, and Happy Wanderings!
