KREWE OF THE GOLDEN YEARS
PRESENTS MARDI GRAS FAIS DO-DO!

LAKE CHARLES, La. (December 20, 2011)-Calcasieu Council on Aging presents the Krewe of the Golden Year's 17th Annual Mardi Gras Ball on Monday, February 13, 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. in the Lake Charles Civic Center Coliseum.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. All attendants are encouraged to wear a mask and dress for the occasion in their favorite Mardi Gras attire.

Seniors will be entertained by bands that jam the day away with lots of good old time and Cajun music. The day gets rolling with a continental breakfast, and by mid-morning, is in full swing with lots of dancing, a costume contest and the crowing of the 2012 "Krewe of the Golden Year's King & Queen." A parade of Mardi Gras Krewes flaunting their array of beautiful costumes will also be a delight for the day. 

After loads of dancing and fun, a delicious lunch of gumbo with all the trimmings will be served to all. This event is free for seniors 60 and over and CCOA encourages all seniors to come out and enjoy this day of fun and festivities.
