Mardi Gras in downtown OP will bring Mardi Gras

The Star:

Mardi Gras will be celebrated in June this year.

Colorful beads, savory king cake, and mysterious masks are just a few of the things to expect at Downtown Overland Park Days, which will take place June 6 and 7 on Santa Fe Drive, between 79th and 80th Streets.

The arts and crafts festival is themed after the holiday to lighten up the atmosphere and attract a younger crowd.

“It’s hard to celebrate Mardi Gras in February in Kansas because it’s too cold to have fun,” said Kate Maricle, director of events and operations for downtown Overland Park. “We wanted to bring that happy atmosphere, that celebration, to our festival during the warm weather.”
