On February 28, Snow College Student Life will be hosting a Mardi Gras event. Organizers hope it will be a fun exciting event for the student body to attend. Mardi Gras food and drinks will be served for everyone to enjoy.
The celebration started with Governer Warmoth when he made the “Mardi Gras Act.” This meant that Fat Tuesday would be a legal holiday in Louisiana. Mardi gras is still celebrated to this day in Louisiana. Their famous parade is known as the “Greatest Free Show on Earth.” Their parades are some of the biggest and most famous in the United States.
This year at Snow College, organizers hope to be bringing a little bit of Bourbon street to Ephraim. Weston Allinson, a Student Body Advocate at Snow College, is part of planning this even. He says: “It’s going to be a night of glitter, vibrant colors, and authentic food. We are going to bring a little bit of Bourbon Street down to Ephraim.”
Kathy Ramos tells us what she feels Mardi Gras is like: “It’s filled with Jazz music, very colorful colors, beaded necklaces, and joy. I think that this event will be a fun event to hang out with friends. I feel like the mood of the night is going to be a laid back, fun night.”
This will be a great way to get the students to celebrate this fun holiday. Even though it is not the Louisiana way, it is still going to be such a great experience for everyone to attend.
Students should remember their student ID on the 28th of February. A night of live music and so many more fun activities will be provided in celebration of this authentic Louisianan holiday.
