Breckenridge Mardi Gras February 13, 2018Make no mistake about it, here in Breckenridge we give our friend down in the Big Easy a run for their money! Our two-mile high festivities have become known for setting the bar for Mardi Gras in the mountains! Each year, Breckenridge is taken over by masks, beads, boas, music and festivity to commemorate the holiday.
