Mardi Gras Comes Early

Posted By on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 11:20 AM


Mardi Gras doesn't happen in New Orleans until February 21st this year, but the Mystic Krewe of Pegasus is getting the party started early in Memphis with Mardi Gras Ball IX at Minglewood Hall on Saturday, January 28th.

The annual event features music, drinks, Mardi Gras royalty, and a tableaux-style floor show with costumes designed and created by the Krewe members. This year's event benefits Mid-South Spay & Neuter Services. Guests are encouraged to dress up like movie stars from Hollywood's Golden Age since this year's theme is "Guys and Dolls."

Entertainment for the evening will be lead by Miss Gay America 2012 Kirby Kolby of North Carolina.

Check out the Krewe's Facebook event page to purchase tickets.
