Start time: 7:00. Music starts at 7:30 pm
Planning for the annual Mardi Gras Ball takes place all year long. Mysti Krewe of Nimbus – the Portland based New Orleans style Mardi Gras Krewe – pulls from member’s Louisiana and Gulf Coast heritage, and from locals bringing a taste of the Louisiana experience to the Pacific Northwest.
What to expect? One thing Portlanders enjoy is dressing up in costume and heading out for a night of revelry. Bring out your best over the top finery and participate in the Costume Contest. Watch the crowning of the new Mardi Gras King and Queen. And dance the night away to live Cajun and Zydeco music. Of course expect plenty of beads and King Cake.
Who’s playing this year?
- Northside Skull and Bones Gang
- Too Loose Cajun and Zydeco Band
- Transcendental Brass Band
- Dk Stewart’s Sextet
- The Roseland Hunters
Waterfront Blues Fest July 4th 2013
Look for Mysti Krewe of Nimbus Mardi Gras “Processional” second line parade at the Safeway Waterfront Bluesfest July 4th. We’ll parade around 3:30 – 4pm. Bring your hanky, parasol, and joie de vivre! Watch for the Skull and Bones Gang, Transcendental Brass Band, and The Brass Roots Movement. We’ll have beads and, please, don’t show us *anything* to get them.
Here’s a couple video clips of the parade!
