Have you ever wanted to be part of a Mardi Gras carnival parade? If so, we have something special for you this year. The first part of this year’s Opening Night Event will be a parade from the Hilton Riverside to our event venue at the Sugar Mill. The carnival parade will feature a marching band, stilt walkers and other parade revelers, including an authentic second line, which has been part of the New Orleans culture for many years. Once you parade into the Sugar Mill, the Rockin’ Dopsie and the Zydeco Twisters will take to the stage to keep the party going. This year’s menu will feature Cajun, Creole and Southern Specialties from Chef Ralph Brennan with chefs on hand to answer questions about Chef Brennan’s creations. Dress code: No dress code, however, we encourage you to take this opportunity to transform into your favorite Mardi Gras character and join in on the festivities!
