Ten downtown Rehoboth Beach restaurants are gearing up for Mardi Gras festivities to be held Friday-Tuesday, Feb. 12-16, featuring special New Orleans cuisine and Cajun cooking, Bourbon Street beverages, Mardi Gras parties, live music and lots of beads.
Whether the restaurants specialize in Latin cuisine or burgers and beer, everyone will be going Cajun for downtown Rehoboth’s Mardi Gras.
