Utica's Mardi Gras Extravaganza now celebrates its 11th year, and is one of the Mohawk Valley’s most anticipated events. This year’s theme is entitled "The Party, Mardi Gras Remix", and is Sculpture Space's signature event. "The Party, Mardi Gras Remix" takes place on February 26, 2011, 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel-Utica Centre Ballroom, Utica, NY.
Live music will be provided by the acclaimed band Captain Squeeze & the Zydeco Moshers. Renowned internationally for its exquisitely crafted life-size puppets, the Catskill Puppet Theatre will present towering dancing marionettes that will parade and perform on the dance floor. There will be a variety of authentic Cajun food, open bar including our signature drink, and festive costumes and dancing. For those who get inspired, there are dancing platforms and lots of beads and plumes. This year’s silent auction will feature a diverse selection of auction items, including distinctive art by local artists, jewelry, weekend getaways and boutique baskets.
Advance sale tickets are $50.00 per person through February 23, or $60 at the door. For more information, please call Sculpture Space at 315-724-8381.
