Fat Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday. It is usually associated with Mardi Gras in New Orleans and Carnival in Rio de Jeneiro, but it is celebrated all over the world in different ways. You might have heard of it referred to as Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day! The idea is to feast before the fast of Lent that starts on Ash Wednesday.
For us, we celebrate Fat Tuesday by serving a decadent dinner and host an open mic, where people in our community can sign up to bring a song. It is a lot of fun to come eat and watch, or come share you talent! It is a great family event!
