Covington’s MainStrasse is celebrating Mardi Gras with a family-friendly parade and party.

In classic carnival style, there will be fat heads — actual large, papier-mâché heads or paper masks that people wear over their own faces or carry during the parade — music, dancing and plenty of beads.

Make your way from the kick-off point at Ninth and Main streets for an evening of indulging at restaurants and bars before the start of Lent.

There will be drink specials throughout MainStrasse Village.

7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22. Free admission. MainStrasse Village, Covington, facebook.com/mainstrassevillage.
