Mardi Gras in March!

On Wednesday, March 9, 2016, the Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge will sponsor a Mardi Gras in March  party at Roosevelt Hall (behind the Lake Lure Inn).  The event will go from 6:30 PM – 10 PM.  Proceeds from the event will benefit Lake Lure Classical Academy and The Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge.

Party-goers will enjoy an authentic Taste of the Gorge Cajun buffet including Etouffee, Jambalaya, Bourbon Chicken, red beans and rice, New Orleans salad, with authentic King Cake for dessert.  Soft drinks, tea and bottled water will be available.  Buffet food items are being prepared by our local restaurants in the Gorge, including Medina’s, Point of View, Lake Lure Grill, Esmeralda and the Lake House Diner.

Dance the night away to the sounds of Bayou Diesel – back by popular demand!  There will be a silent auction, off-the-wall opportunities to earn your beads and prizes for best costumes.

Eat, drink, be merry!

Tickets are $50 per person and on sale at April’s Boutique in Chimney Rock and the Chamber of Hickory Nut Gorge office in Lake Lure (next to Carolina Trust Bank).
