Danish Mardi Gras celebrated in Bay Ridge
Dozens of people celebrated the Danish Mardi Gras in Bay Ridge Saturday.
The event took place at the Danish Athletic Club, which has been around for 125 years.
It featured revelers decked out in costumes, dancing and a slice of Scandinavian heritage.
"I think it's great. It's not just for people who are Scandinavian," says Victoria Hofmo, the event's organizer. "Everyone is welcome to come. It's about sharing our traditions and our customs."
