There are several events taking place today and so far it looks like the weatherman has our backs.

The biggest Mardi Gras event of the day (for adults) is the big Lundi Gras Party tonight at Cowboys with Keith Franks. This is our 8th Annual so we have a good idea of how much fun it is when I say 'our' I mean a Townsquare Media Production in conjunction with Cowboys Night Club. It's billed annually as the 'must attend' event of the season.

Keith Frank 'The Zydeco King' in person tonight at Cowboys sponsored by Townsquare Media

Doors open at 7:30 and Keith will no doubt perform some selections from his new #1 on iTunes and Google Play, "The King is Back". See him in person tonight.

We can absolutely guarantee this event will not rain out and you won't get cold!
