Mardi Gras takes a walk in The Park
"Safari in the Park" is the theme for this year's Mardi Gras in The Park at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 920 Holley Ave., St. Paul Park.
The celebration, traditionally held prior to Ash Wednesday, was changed so that it wouldn't clash with Super Bowl Sunday.
Everyone is invited to Mardi Gras activities from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, including games for kids, a silent auction, bake sale, bingo, country store, games of chance, a cake walk, food, beverages and lots of prizes. Raffle tickets are $2 each and can be purchased from parishioners or at the parish office, (651) 459-2131.
