Mardi Gras time in Portland!

Portland Mardi Gras Ball 2011

Portland Mardi Gras Ball 2011

I’m working with a great team of New Orleans ex-pats who’ve transformed themselves into the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus . In New Orleans, a krewe is mearly an organization that puts together a float, parade or celebration ball for the Mardi Gras season. There are a gazillion Krewes, some very old and revered, some new and piecemeal!

More on Krewes from Wikipedia

Continuing the tradition from thousands of miles away, The Mysti Krewe of Nimbus is hosting Portland’s First Annual Mardi Gras Ball Saturday, March 5th, 2011 at the Norse Hall on SE 11th. Tickets are $25.

Dance lessons! NOLA style food! King and Queen!

Taking the Louisiana State Song, “You Are My Sunshine” as its theme, the 2011 Ball will feature the
