Carnival Costume Ball

We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

The Krewe of Crane invites you to an evening of feasting and revelry to celebrate Carnival and Mardi Gras, with live music by the Squeezebox Stompers, food and drink. French for "Fat Tuesday", Mardi Gras dates back thousands of years to pagan celebrations of spring and fertility, like the wild Roman festivals of Saturnalia and Lupercalia. The current incarnation of Carnival, influenced by Christianity, allows for a period of excess and debauchery before the ritual fasting and abstinence of the Lenten season. We plan to indulge you with sumptuous treats, luscious libations, and music that will encourage you to dance with wild abandon. Costumes are encouraged! Cash bar; one free drink included with registration; www.thetrustees.org/craneoutdooradventures
