Dust those beads and crazy masks off, because the city will party New Orleans style two nights this February.
Winnipeg Mardi Gras runs February 12 and 13, 2010 at the Convention Centre in support of numerous local charities.
Tickets are $16 at Ticketmaster, or any of the following charities: Canadian Liver Foundation, CancerCare Manitoba Foundation, Children’s Rehabilitation Foundation, CNIB, Dreams Take Flight, Heart and Stroke Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Macdonald Youth Services, Society for Manitobans with Disabilities Foundation, Southdale Recreation Centre and The Rainbow Society.
A three-course dinner will also be offered, and those tickets can be purchased by calling 957-4535.
