Chambliss Center for Children, in collaboration with Events with Taste, will host a Mardi Gras Masked Parade on Saturday, May 8, from 7-11 p.m. at First Horizon Pavilion, 1826 Reggie White Blvd.
The evening will begin with beads, Dixieland jazz, and hurricanes. Guests will then be escorted to their “Krewe Quarters,” a space designated for them to decorate and enjoy the night in a socially-responsible way. A virtual silent auction will be open throughout the event, and Cajun-inspired fare will be served. The event will conclude with a celebratory Mardi Gras Masked Parade, complete with floats and walking groups.
The Mardi Gras Masked Parade is sponsored by The Mark Hite Team; Brewski; JHM Certified Public Accountants; Chambliss Law; Title Guaranty & Trust; First Horizon Bank; Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics of Chattanooga, and TVA.
“We realize we are past the traditional Mardi Gras season, but this event is always so much fun, we think our guests will forgive us for that,” said Lesley Berryhill, director of Special Projects and Events. “We’re happy to be able to move the event outdoors and incorporate a parade, which fits in perfectly with the theme.”
Krewe Quarters are on sale now. The “Krewe Quarter” level is $750 and includes a reserved table for eight, special beads and party favors. The “Super Krewe Quarter” level is $1,250 and includes the same benefits as the “Krewe” level plus deluxe beads, a table sign with logo, and additional fun party favors. The “Parade Krewe” level is $1,500, includes the benefits of Krewe Quarter as well as an opportunity to participate in the parade.
