Asbury Park Mardi Gras is back! Join us for free family fun with mask making, face painting & music on Saturday afternoon, then the Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball at night. Here's all the details:
1:00 to 500: 2nd Annual Mardi Gras mask decorating and contest, free face painting, and free music
Pick up your free, undecorated mask at Backward Glances, inside the Shoppes at the Arcade, 658 Cookman Avenue. Then visit participating businesses downtown to get free decorations to apply to your mask. Tables with glue will be set up at the Shoppes at the Arcade to design your own special Mardi Gras creation. An adult and kids winner will be chosen at 5:15
Artists Raven and Jade will be returning for free face painting downstairs at the Shoppes at the Arcade. There will be music around the downtown courtesy of the Lakehouse and the Music Saved My Life program.
7:00 The 2nd Annual Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball: "New Jersey meets New Orleans" at the House of Independents, 572 Cookman Ave.
It's going to be a blast! W've got the Marc Stone 3, coming from New Orleans for their first ever NJ appearance! Marc is a fixture of the New Orleans music scene, been nominated several times for their Best of the Beat awards, tours internationally, and is a well known DJ on WWOZ. You don't want to miss this set.
And representing New Jersey: the return of last year's faves The VooDUDES. You know they got everyone dancing last year. This year they are bringing horns to increase the party!
All profits from the ball go to our local charity Asbury Park Music Foundation. Dress in your best Mardi Gras attire to win the costume contest for amazing prizes from the Asbury Park merchants.$20 advance, $25 day of show. Tickets on sale via ticketweb or at Backward Glances or at House of Independents.
After all this excitement, you're going to need a place to crash. The Asbury Hotel is offering a discounted room rate for Saturday night; just use the online code "APMardiGras".
Wear your Mardi gras beads or mask to shop downtown on Sunday and receive special discounts from Asbury Park merchants!
Hope you can join us in Asbury Park: where music lives and the good times roll!
