The gates opened at noon. And there were about 40 vendors, activities for kids, and music this year.

"I couldn't turn it down. I really couldn't turn it down. Cause once I got here, I knew I would enjoy myself," said Denicia Clarit.

"This is our 13th year doing this. But we got all the fair food that you like, Funnel Cakes, sausage dogs, hamburgers, hot dogs," said Tommy Gregors.

The Mardi Gras Street fest goes all the way til midnight. Tickets are $5 dollars.
