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
