Are you ready to get some beads? It's Mardi Gras time and this weekend, in true Hillcrest fashion, the whole neighborhood is celebrating.

First, you can kick off the party at Flicks on Thursday then do a little community service by cleaning up the coast early on Saturday before heading into Hillcrest to celebrate Mardi Gras at the block party.

But the fun doesn't stop there. After you have gotten your beads on at the Hillcrest street event head on over to Rich's for a Massive continuation of festivities.
