HAMPTON -- If you can't make it to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, Hampton's going to be a great place to celebrate.
Peninsula Town Center and Bonfire Magazine are hosting a Mardi Gras Celebration for the first time. It's March 1 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The $20 ticket ($15 for military) will give you access to sampling food from PTC restaurants, listen to live music from 504 Supreme and enjoy New Orleans-style entertainment from Magical Solutions.
Ticket proceeds benefit the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula. For more information and to buy a ticket or two, go to the Peninsula Town Center Web site.
