Getting There!

The 2013 Long Beach Mardi Gras takes place all around Rainbow Harbor, which is at the foot of Pine Avenue, in downtown Long Beach.

Take the 710 Freeway South to Shoreline Drive. The closest intersection to the heart of the festival is Pine Avenue and Shoreline Drive. You can use our event headquarters near ’330 South Pine Avenue’ (Gladstone’s Long Beach) for online map services.

The preferred Parking structure is located at the Pike, where restaurants around the Harbor will validate for 90 minutes.
