The Ojai Mardi Gras, 'OMG,' is an annual charity ball in Ojai, California. A 'child' of the New Orleans Mardi Gras, the OMG has its own flair and yearly theme. 2013 marks the 23rd OMG, with 'Burning Desire' as the theme. The origin of the OMG is a moving tribute to the power of love and friendship, bringing together a community to celebrate their lives. Our story chronicles how this event came to Ojai, as well as following this year's party.
