Keep the girls covered, ladies, because while the Norman Mardi Gras Parade indeed has beads, this one’s family-friendly and focused on creativity, not debauchery. The 19th annual event kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday in downtown Norman, with music from The Zydeco All Stars and more. Related events are planned at nearby businesses. Admission is free.
