Spindletop Mardi Gras Celebration
“Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler”
The Spindletop Mardi Gras Celebration has become a popular event while raising more funds for Houston’s youth!! This annual event is traditionally held on the Friday night prior to the Lenten Season’s Ash Wednesday and during the excitement of Mardi Gras season! The 250 guests arrive at the historic Crystal Ballroom at the Rice Hotel showing off their creative costume attire or festive Mardi Gras masquerade. Upon arrival, they are entertained by fortune tellers, character artists, jazz entertainers and strolling magicians. The festivities continue throughout the evening with collaborative art projects, Louisiana dancing tunes, funky photos, fine Cajun cuisine and more fun and “games”!
