Businesses around Haynie’s Corner and Franklin St. will be buzzing on Friday night for Mardi Gras celebrations. The two districts are joining together for a two-day party this weekend.
The event officially kicks off at 5 p.m. but if last year’s turnout is any indication, it’s going to get pretty busy down there.
New this year, there are trolleys running from 5-10 p.m. between West Franklin St. and Haynie’s Corner.
You’ll have to get a wristband to enter the events on Franklin Street. There will be free cab rides and Uber will be providing links to coupons for first-time riders.
The cost for armbands at Franklin St. are $10 for both nights. The festivities run from 5 p.m. – 2 a.m.
