Harold’s Mardi Gras party set for Feb. 28


CAVE CREEK – Ready for a party with Mardi Gras flair? Harold’s Cave Creek Corral is inviting the public to its 8th Annual Mardi Gras Party from 6 p.m.-1 a.m. on Fat Tuesday, Feb. 28.

The festive party features an authentic Mardi Gras buffet, drink specials, and live music by New Orleans-style jazz band, Dan Reed's Dixieland Hotshots. Admission is free, but reservations are requested for the $18.99 authentic New Orleans-style buffet, featuring crawfish, fresh gulf coast oysters, jambalaya, chicken gumbo, andouille sausage, dirty rice, shrimp etouffee, and more.

Guests can take swing dance lessons at 7 p.m. and participate in a crawfish eating contest at 8:30 p.m. The popular costume contest takes place at 9 p.m., where prizes will be awarded for “Best Mardi Gras Dressed.”

Danny Piacquadio, Harold’s co-owner, said the restaurant’s Mardi Gras party continues to grow in popularity.

“We add our own Cave Creek twist to it, but this is as close to a true New Orleans Carnevale party as you’ll get here in Arizona. It’s fun for the whole family, so dress in the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, and gold and bring your appetite,” he said.
