Get your purple, green and gold out because it’s Mardi Gras Time for Orange Beach!
And, I can’t think of a better way to start the season off right than at The Conference Center at The Wharf, which was opened last night with The Mystical Order of Mirams Goddess of The Seas 2009 Mardi Gras Ball. Over 300 people enjoyed the Rockin’ Moroccan Nights with their Queen Dana Day and Emblem Virginia Lynn at this new complex at The Wharf. Accompanied by a setting of extravagant Moroccan decorations, Vince Vance and the Andy Smith Band entertained the Gulf Coast guests for their 3rd annual ball. Doors opened at seven o’clock that evening and the Tableau was held at eight. What a spectacular first night at The Conference Center at The Wharf!
The Mardi Gras celebration does not stop there. Kicking off Saturday night at 8 p.m., The Mystics of Pleasure will have their ball at The Conference Center at The Wharf as well. Their “Nine is Fine” Masquerade Ball is the MOP’s ninth Mardi Gras celebration as the largest society on Pleasure Island, and the only society that parades and has its grand ball on the same night!
The Wharf is also celebrating Joe Cain Day this upcoming Sunday, February 22nd. During the onset of Civil War, Mardi Gras celebrations on the gulf coast came to an abrupt halt. In 1866, Joseph Cain paraded down the streets of Mobile to bring Mardi Gras celebration back to the Gulf Coast, and his successful ambition to revive the surrounding cities is observed each year on the Sunday before Mardi Gras Day, dubbed Joe Cain Day.
