Reno’s first Mardi-Gras-themed crawl is Saturday.

“The first annual Mardi Crawl is more than just bead necklaces,” said Ed Adkins of Crawl Reno, organizers of the event. “If you like beads, there will be more than 3,000 sets given out this Saturday when hundreds of costumed revelers will flock to downtown in order to get a taste of New Orleans in the Biggest Little City.”

The event held annually in New Orleans fits in with his other crawls, Adkins added.

Along with traditional drinks like the Hurricane and Hand Grenade, crawlers will see street performers like stilt walkers, burlesque dancers and live jazz bands.

Crawl Reno volunteers will be handing out handmade flowers and beads.

The event takes place at 15 locations starting at 8 p.m. at The Waterfall bar on the corner of 2nd and West Street.

Crawlers with cups and maps will be treated to drink specials at each location, no cover at the clubs, free photos taken at the event’s photo booth and chances to win prizes.
