NARRATOR: Festival time is upon us with the Mardi Gras which means "Fat Tuesday" in French. This is the time when parades and parties and costumes were in style for a day (sometimes a week) after a hard winter and before the more serious work of spring began. Tonight our Pack _____ presents its own Mardi Gras.
(Four Cubs each wearing a different mask or costume enter from the side.)
CUB #1: Mardi Gras comes in February or early March.
CUB #2: Mardi Gras is a time for costumes, clowns and being different.
CUB #3: Mardi Gras is a time for a parade (or a march around the gym).
CUB #4: Mardi Gras is a short time for having fun.
NARRATOR: Tonight as we meet in the spirit of fun, we also want to remember our respect for each other and the flag which represents us all. Will you please stand and day the "Pledge of Allegiance" with us.
