Mardi Gras party at Wheatland with Back Bayou, February 19

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Aiyeeee!!! The Wheatland Music Organization has their annual Mardi Gras party on Saturday, February 19, with local Cajun music band Back Bayou providing the tunes. Yes, we know Mardi Gras is really on March 8 in 2011, but since folks can celebrate other holidays more than once (witness “Christmas in July”) they can also celebrate Mardi Gras more than once a year. Any excuse to party is a good excuse, especially if it’s to good Cajun or zydeco music, n’est-pas?

Anyway, the dance party is in the Gladys Wernette building on the grounds of the WMO, located at 7251 50th Avenue, Remus, Michigan. It’s about 20 miles west of Mt. Pleasant. There’s a potluck dinner at 6:00 pm, followed by the dance at 7:30. Don’t forget to wear your Mardi Gras costume! Info: 989-967-8879.
