Margate Mardi Gras
During the holiday periods, Margate is overrun with holidaymakers. The beaches are bustling with activity.
On Wednesday evenings during these peak times, the Margate Business Association organises a weekly Mardi Gras: a largely popular midweek festival of fun. Marine Drive is converted from the main street to a hive of activity, complete with entertainment, flea-market like stalls, food and live music.
