What to expect? One thing Portlanders enjoy is dressing up in costume and heading out for a night of revelry. Bring out your best over the top finery and participate in the Costume Contest. Watch the crowning of the new Mardi Gras King and Queen. And dance the night away to live Cajun and Zydeco music. Of course expect plenty of beads and King Cake.
Yikes speaking of movie theaters – our awesome Academy Theater in Montavilla needs to convert to digital. It will cost a whole lot of money. They will be starting a crowdsource funding campaign with perks soon – here’s the Info:
