Kickoff Mardi Gras in NWLA at the Annual 12th Night Celebration
After a year off due to COVID-19, I don't know about you, but I'm ready to kick off the 2022 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 Centaur Saturday, January 8th, 2022 at the Bossier Civic Center. Doors open at 6 pm and the party runs from 6:30 pm till 11 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 I just checked out their song list and it's legit! I definitely plan on hitting the dance floor.
Tickets are $55 and can be purchased via the Krewe of Centaur website. There will also be tickets available at the door the night of the event for $65. This is 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!
