Experience Eureka Springs’ Eureka Gras 2016!

January 8th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Krewe of Krazo Eureka Gras 2016By the time you read this, Eureka Springs’ Eureka Gras 2016 – January 9th through February 9th – will have likely already begun but fear not! Mardi Gras is a month long event with lots of fun events scheduled and there’s still time to come celebrate with the Krewe of Krazo!

The 11th annual Eureka Gras, sponsored by our very own Krewe of Krazo (“Krazo” is “Ozark” backwards), promises to be even bigger and better than the previous decade’s worth of Eureka Springs Mardi Gras celebrations.

A New Orleans style Mardi Gras, this year’s Eureka Gras theme is “Hooray for Hollywood” and everyone is welcome to attend! While some events, such as the Jokers Masquerade Ball and the Coronation Ball are private, most are open to the public and not to be missed!

The Black Light Ball scheduled for Saturday, January 30th at 8pm, for example, is billed as a “Sexy, Artistic, & Fun event in a stylish underground space with Black Light Paint, Models, Music & More!” Tickets are available online and only $25 per person.

Another popular event, the Mayor’s Ball, is a fun opportunity to dress up in Hollywood or Mardi Gras style attire (casual dress is also acceptable) and party at the top of the Basin Park Hotel with live music from Melonlight Studios. Tickets for this event are only $35 apiece and are also available online.

The Jazz Champagne Brunch is also a favorite, offering fine dining, fun, and live jazz music in the Crystal Dining Room at the world famous Crescent Hotel. Be sure to bring your umbrella for the 2nd line dance! $25 per person with reservations recommended: 479-253-9652
