Mardi Gras Picnic
OVERVIEW: The atmosphere is purely New Orleans and the time is Mardi Gras--this is a party that gets any group in a great mood. We begin the party with an authentic New Orleans Street Band to get everyone in the right spirit upon arriving. Our Mardi Gras Man street performer will greet your guests with his exuberant personality and his trained macaws, while a strolling magician adds a dash of mystery and intrigue. A traditional Cajun lunch followed by fun play time at the casino will keep the adults happy while the children make their crafts and interact with the jester. A great party favor to hand out upon guest arrival is an exotic feather mask. An excellent recipe for an exciting and entertaining day for all of your guests. Have fun reading about all that we have in store for the Mardi Gras Party!
