The gloomy days of winter will once again be banished for one glorious night when the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus hosts its 10th ANNUAL MARDI GRAS BALL. As Portland’s only Mardi Gras krewe and social club, MKON puts on the event every year. This year’s theme is “Magical Mystery Krewe”.
The lively, spirited Ball, considered to be the most authentic Louisiana Mardi Gras celebration in the Pacific Northwest, will be held Saturday, February 22nd at the Wonder Ballroom.
Performers this year include Lucky Beaucoup, Too Loose Cajun Zydeco Band, the Northside Skull and Bones Gang, and the Magical Mystery Revue Band. Who will flaunt their costume and dance across the stage for the Costume Contest? Who will be the new King and Queen for 2020? There will be full bars, King Cake, and all manner of lagniappe. Costumes are encouraged (though not required) and prizes will be awarded.
Portland’s annual Mardi Gras Ball has been listed by the New Orleans Times-Picayune as one of the Top-5 most authentic Mardi Gras celebrations in the United States outside Louisiana. It’s a joyous mass of festive revelry and full costume finery – crazy, macabre, funny, groovy, trippy, psychedelic, weird, beautiful… In short, it’s a magical extravaganza. The public (over age 21) is welcome to join in the fun.
Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday parade: In addition to the Ball, Portlanders are invited to join the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus on Fat Tuesday, February 25th, for the annual free, family-friendly Mardi Gras parade down Mississippi Avenue.
