Culture Connect Featured Event
Ever wanted to go to Mardi Gras? Do you love the costumes? Do you want to earn your beads? You can travel 1,390 miles to New Orleans or you can stay in New Haven! The Purr Project is bringing to you the event of the year - “Mardi Gras New Haven.”
It is called "the biggest party on Earth" - Mardi Gras…and the mere mention of these two words makes people think of raucous celebrations, beads flying through the air, and ear-to-ear grins.
Get dressed in your best masquerade Costume and come to Mardi Gras - New Haven style. You’ll enjoy live music, a New Orleans style buffet, raffle prizes, a feature burlesque show, and beads by the handfuls.
The fun starts at 8:00 p.m., on March 23rd, right in downtown New Haven at the Elk’s Lodge #25 at 524 State Street.
All proceeds go to benefit homeless animals.
