Mardi Gras 2015 offers Cajun style food and dance

Saturday, Feb. 14 at 6 p.m. — PROCTORSVILLE — Is it time to chase away your mid-winter blues? Mardi Gras is almost here, and you can do so by dining and dancing with the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association at its sixth annual Mardi Gras celebration. This year the festivities take place on Saturday, Feb. 14 at Crow’s Bakery and Opera House Café on Depot Street in Proctorsville. Doors open at 6 p.m. and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets for the dinner and dance are $40 per person but are limited to 30 people.

There will be a New Orleans Cajun style buffet dinner including pulled pork or vegetarian po’ boys, corn bread, coleslaw, Seymour’s Famous shrimp étouffée, red beans and rice, cupcakes and more, with choice of beverages.

What would a Mardi Gras party be without Cajun music? Dancing to the great tunes of Yankee Chank with Cavendish’s very own fiddler Bob Naess will fill the evening. Of course it also wouldn’t be Mardi Gras without masks, so there will be a prize for the best and most creative homemade mask.

This is a fundraiser for the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association, whose projects include the annual Cavendish Calendar, the Walk and Talk series of conservation events, the Energy Committee and its educational workshops, and the Community Fund. So dig out your mask and dancing shoes, and buy your tickets early. Laissez les bon temps rouler (let the good times roll)!

For those who would like to just enjoy the music and dancing, tickets are $10 at the door starting at 7:30 p.m. Dinner tickets are available at Crow’s Bakery or by calling 802-226-7736.
