Move over New Orleans and Sydney - the Mardi Gras is coming to Anglesey, North Wales for the first time ever.
In Meical a'r Mardi Gras viewers can enjoy the fun, sound and colour of the North Wales Mardi Gras through the eyes of mischievous presenter Meical Owen. He will present the music, entertainment and the stalls as he chats to some of the visitors. He will also meet some of the organisers to hear the story behind the event.
Meical Owen, 29, attended one of world's most famous Mardi Gras in Sydney in 2004. It was an unforgettable experience and he is looking forward to reliving the incredible atmosphere in Anglesey.
"I really enjoyed the Sydney Mardi Gras. I'd go back there now if I could!" says the presenter from Pwllheli, who appears regularly alongside comedian Tudur Owen in the S4C show Sioe Tudur Owen.
The North Wales Mardi Gras will be held at the Mona showground, Anglesey and is the biggest event in the history of the gay community in North Wales. Mardi Gras is something normally associated with cities, and Meical is looking forward to seeing how the rural community will respond to the event.
"A Mardi Gras has been held in Cardiff for 12 years now, and it's about time it came to North Wales," says Meical. "I hope the Mardi Gras will succeed in bringing the community together. It's an event for everyone, not just gay people.
"I'm also looking forward to seeing what visitors from places such as Blackpool and Manchester think, since they are so used to events like Gay Pride parades."
Meical hopes the event will grow from year to year.
"This is the beginning; I hope it will grow over the years. I'd compare it to the Wakestock festival which started out in a car park in Aberdaron. I remember going to the first Wakestock and there was very little there, just one music tent. But look at it today! I hope this will happen to the Mardi Gras too."
