Ellicottville is preparing for next weekend’s Mardi Gras/Winter Carnival – the last major event of winter!

You’re guaranteed a great time all weekend-long at Holiday Valley, where you’ll enjoy the Dummy Downhill race, snow sculptures, a costumed-skier parade, pancake breakfasts, cookouts, the infamous Snow Bar and so much more.

Be sure to head to the Village Saturday evening for the wackiest Mardi Gras parade this side of New Orleans. Come in costume or just wear lots of beads and cheer for your favorite floats.

It’s a great time for the entire family!
