Kickoff Mardi Gras in NWLA at the Annual 12th Night Celebration
I don't know about you, but I'm ready to kick off the 2023 Mardi Gras season and let the good times roll here in Shreveport-Bossier!
This year's 12th Night celebration will be hosted by the Krewe of Gemini Saturday, January 7th, 2023, at Phoenix 2.0 in downtown Shreveport starting at 7 pm. This party is a favorite of revelers in the Ark-La-Tex... which just might have something to do with it featuring an open bar. If having bottomless drink cups isn't enough to entice you, how about music from The Wonderfuls? They're a cover band out of Dallas and they're a ton of fun. I definitely plan on hitting the dance floor.
Tickets are $65 in advance and $70 at the door. You can purchase them via eventbrite. In addition to an open bar and a live band, there will also be food trucks on site and it's also your chance to see and meet all of the new royalty from our area krewes as they're introduced during the evening. But don't think you have to be a member of a krewe to attend, this event is open to the public and they encourage folks new to Mardi Gras to attend! BTW, the dress is Mardi Gras festive/casual/no shorts. I'm wearing a gold sequin jacket if that helps!
