Savannh Mardi Gras 2020As February approaches, thoughts turn to love and … Mardi Gras! Mardi Gras is celebrated all over the world, including right here on Tybee Island. Come experience a Savannah Mardi Gras on Tybee, February 22, 2020!

The first American Mardi Gras was celebrated in 1703, in Mobile, AL while the city was still the capital of French colonial Louisiana.
