FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- It's never too late to celebrate Mardi Gras, especially when it's for a good cause.

Liliana's Restaurant in Fitchburg held its 6th annual Mad City Mardi Gras event Sunday. It's a fundraiser for the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, featuring activities and a brunch.

Owner Dave Heide says the event is all about keeping the free zoo open for years to come.

"This has never mae us money but we do it just because we love the zoo and we love to do anything we can to help," says Heide. "We do a lot for the community and this is kind of our one big event we do."

Heide says over the past six years, they've raised $20,000 for the zoo.
