Forget those stuffy, invitation-only balls thrown by those stuffy, invitation-only krewes. The inaugural Krewe de Bayou Mardi Gras Ball is for everyone.

Hosted by Townsquare Media, the bash will throw down starting at 7 p.m., on Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Downtown Ballroom & Bistro on Jefferson Street. Everyone is invited — for a $30 admission ticket, but no krewe fees or other sundry expenses are levied. The theme for this first Krewe de Bayou Mardi Gras Ball is “the Roaring 20s,” so get your spats and flapper gowns ready.

A king and queen will be announced soon for this 21-and-older par-tay. Tickets are available at Schlotzsky’s on Johnston Street and Pinhook Road and via For further information including details on VIP tables, call Jen Carlson at (337) 233-6000.
