CLARKESVILLE - Clarkesville Main Street presents the 2nd Annual Clarkesville Mardi Gras, designed to raise funds for the Downtown Fašade Grant Program.

All monies raised from this event will go toward the Clarkesville Fašade Grant Program.

The Facade Grant Program makes funds available for fašade improvements in downtown Clarkesville.

The Baron-York Building
Royal Foods (Gulf Station)

All Occasion Flowers
The Wishing Well

Ther goal is to raise $10,000 from the Mardi Gras event as well as private donations. Private sponsors of the Facade Grant receive publicity perks and recognition for each completed project.
