San Diego Fat Tuesday February 12, 2013

Carnival in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter: Street Parties, Beaches, Missions, and Wild Animals

Mardi Gras as celebrated in San Diego’s infamous Gaslamp Quarter is more of an open party than a community celebration put on by krewes and secret societies.  While there is a parade, and there are floats, the thousands of revelers who celebrate Fat Tuesday in San Diego are here to party and not collect throws, compete for costume awards, or the honor of being named King Rex.

Though not quite as massive as its big sister to the north (Los Angeles), the greater San Diego community stretches from as far north as Oceanside and the Camp Pendleton Marine Base south to the Mexican Border and to the east well past El Cajon.

As one would expect, there are quite a few ways to occupy the daylight hours between, before, and after the Gaslamp Quarter’s big Mardi Gras celebration on Fat Tuesday night.
