Hillcrest Mardi Gras …Tuesday, February 21, 2012 6:00 pm – 11pm

The GSDBA Charitable Foundation and the Hillcrest Business Association

are pleased to announce the

11th Annual Hillcrest Mardi Gras

Fat Tuesday,

February 21, 2012

The annual event benefits both organizations and is patterned after the annual celebration held in New Orleans each year.

The Hillcrest Mardi Gras Street Party has grown steadily over the years, selling out in the VIP tent 2 years in a row.  The Hillcrest event offers San Diegans an opportunity to celebrate and experience Mardi Gras without spending a huge amount of money. Over the last decade the event has raised $160,000 for neighborhood improvements and LGBT Youth Scholarships.

The Hillcrest Mardi Gras Street Party promises to be another fun-filled evening featuring food, live entertainment, costumes and of course, beads!

This year the event will feature a huge dance stage where a nightclub feel will be recreated on the streets of Hillcrest.

The event benefits the GSDBA Foundation and the Hillcrest Business Association.

The GSDBA Charitable Foundation will use proceeds to provide college scholarships to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth and LGBT community straight allies within the San Diego community.

The Hillcrest Business Association uses its portion of the proceeds to further its mission to ensure that Hillcrest is a thriving, vibrant community, with an outstanding business presence.

It’s an adult only (age 21+) Mardi Gras! So, dress up in colorful attire and join the crowd for a night of excitement. Mingle about and make new friends, get handfuls of shiny beads, drink beer, and go dance in the street. The music is great! Enjoy games, rides, and an awesome laser light show.

Admission: $15-$20 (general ticket)

 Location: University Avenue (between 1st Ave. & 4th Ave.)

 ~ Third Avenue (between Washington St. & Robinson St.).
