Merritt Island Mardi Gras Street Party on Merritt Island Features “Fantasy” Theme For 2013
“Fantasy” transcends Brevard on Feb 9, 2013 as the Merritt Island Mardi Gras Street Party lands at an all new and improved location, right in the center of Brevard County in Merritt Island, Florida.
FREE ADMISSION – ALL AGES WELCOME
5 p.m. to late
“Thanks to our community sponsors, the Merritt Island Mardi Gras Street Party will be free for all – with no admission charge in 2013” said Giles Malone, committee member of the 2013 Merritt Island Mardi Gras.
“The Merritt Island Mardi Gras Street Party on Merritt Island is an opportunity for all Brevardians and visitors to gather together to celebrate Fat Tuesday – the traditional name for the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent – so it is only fitting that the event be FREE with no admission charge”.
Fat Tuesday is more commonly known as Mardi Gras, which is simply Fat Tuesday in French. It gets its name from the custom, in many Catholic countries, of marking the day with feasting before the fasting season of Lent begins.
Dress In Your Own “Fantasy” Costume

The outstanding chefs at Mavericks are preparing some delicious and satisfying plates of authentic New Orleans style foods for the revelers to feast on at the Merritt Island Mardi Gras.
“We want people to be able to feast and celebrate Fat Tuesday N’Orleans style” said Nick Zervos partner with Mavericks Sports Grill & Bar on Merritt Island, which is the host location restaurant for the 2013 Merritt Island Mardi Gras Street Party on the Merritt Island peninsular.
Event sponsor Coors Lite and 69 other varieties of delicious custom brews await the Merritt Island Mardi Gras revellers to enjoy late into the night.

Exciting New Merritt Island Location
Located on State Road 520 near the Walmart shopping plaza on Merritt Island, the streets surrounding Mavericks Sports Grill & Bar (formerly known as Dogs Grill) will be the location for the street party.
There will be no charge for admission unlike the previous Mardi Gras Street party that was held in Cocoa Village.
“Our committee used to manage the Mardi Gras in Cocoa but we have moved our community street party to a better location in the center of Brevard on Merritt island. Thanks to our sponsors, we can provide this fun event without an admission charge to the people.
We asked the people and this is what they wanted…a free, fun community street party for all to enjoy”.
