Grab your krewe and head on down to the bayou for the Mardi Gras 5K run/walk! This family friendly event is part of KC’s Mardi Gras Weekend Festival in the Kansas City Power & Light District. Beads along the route, authentic food, festive masks and massive finisher beads are just some of the things that await you! Mardi Gras 5K is proud to support SocialHeart, a non-profit organization that is 100 percent volunteer-managed with the goal of creating a better community by supporting all local charities through unique, fun fundraising events, as well as through social media & marketing promotions and volunteer support.
