While you may not be able to skip town and revel on Bourbon Street next Tuesday, there are still plenty of  things to do for Mardi Gras in Phoenix.

Though Saturday’s Downtown Phoenix Mardi Gras Parade and Festival has been cancelled due to impending rain, there will still be plenty of parties throughout downtown that day. Check out the map below for details:
