Eureka Springs Mardi Gras Extravaganza!

February 1st, 2010 by Sam Feldman

The king and queen have been crowned and the festivities begin! Yes, Eureka Springs does do Mardi Gras in style and if you love that kind of party but can’t travel as far south as New Orleans, be sure to come to Eureka this week! The party begins this Thursday, February 4th, with the Coronation Royalty Ball! By reservation only, this high-class event takes place at the Crescent Hotel and includes a champagne buffet supper!

On Friday, February 5th, don’t miss the Hookers and Jokers Ball at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center. There will be costumes galore and all visitors are invited to join in the fun! “Gay 90′s”, “Guys and Dolls” or “Freakin’ Eurekan” are all acceptable themes – and all open to interpretation! If you are familiar with Eureka Springs at all – you know we’re not kidding!

And if you can’t make it before than, be sure to watch the parade on Saturday, February 6th, at 2 p.m. Queuing up right on Spring St., just a block from the Bridgeford House Bed & Breakfast, everyone is invited to join in! Even your dog is invited to join the “Krewe of Barkus” participating in the parade! Come see Sophie as “Miss Joker”!

And on Sunday, February 7th, back at the Crescent Hotel, join us for the Jazz Brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

And if you still haven’t managed to leave town before Tuesday, February 16th, you have to join the Fat Tuesday Pub Krawl – easy to do in downtown Eureka! Doesn’t matter how far you make it – somebody’ll pick you up!

For full details, schedule and lots of photos, visit the Krewe of Krazo’s site (that’s “Ozark” spelled backwards).

Where else can you have such fun than in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, where “Freakin’ Eurekan” is a household name…

Come see us!

Nadara (Sam) & Jeff – and Sophie, too!!
