Who knew that we had our very own Mardi Gras? …. I will feature a few events from this blog and hope that you all make a point of checking it out as you are out and about the capital…..

‘It’s that time of year again!! The City of Nairobi will let the good times roll with its 2nd Annual Mardi Gras Parade on Saturday, February 27, 2016, at Luna Amusement Park, Kiambu Road.

The Celebration will start at 6pm with food, live music, body painting and AM– — USEMENT PARK RIDES… Yes, you read right – bumper cars, banana boats, merry-go-rounds and a gigantic ferris wheel!
