Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day fall on the same day this year, so we have a lot to celebrate—hearts and flowers combined with the festive atmosphere of Mardi Gras. The celebration starts in the historic district on Saturday, Feb. 10 with Mardi Gras on Main Street. This is a family-oriented day of fun that features a scavenger hunt along Main Street from noon to 4 p.m. Stop by the Howard County Welcome Center at 8267 Main St. and pick up the map that will lead you to hidden Mardi Gras masks in shops throughout town. Find enough and win beads and prizes. Stop for a meal at restaurants featuring New Orleans-inspired food and don’t miss Boogaloo at the Bin, a free, family-friendly New Orleans-style celebration at the Wine Bin from 2 to 10 p.m. It will be setting up a heated tent in its parking lot and feature music, beer, coffee drinks and New Orleans-style food, including a gumbo cook-off. Portalli’s restaurant folk will be shucking oysters in parking lot D by the Little French Market from 1 p.m. until they sell out.
