Mardi Gras Masks in the Bay Area!

On Saturday, February 20, 2010, MASK exhibited a special array of Mardi Gras party masks at Monroe Hall on College Avenue in Santa Rosa at Freddie Marsha's Dance Contest and Mardi Gras.

"Mardi Gras season", and "Carnival season", refer to events of the Carnival  celebrations, beginning on or after Epiphany and ending on the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday" (in ethnic English tradition, Shrove Tuesday), referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which started on Ash Wednesday. 

New Orleans is known for its elaborate and wild celebration of Mardi Gras, but San Franciscans and Bay Area folks sure know how to party, too! MASK sold out of several varieties of feathered and jeweled face masks during the Freddie Marsha event.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and made it such a great time! See you next year at Mardi Gras 2011.
