It's carnival time in Louisiana as the Mardi Gras season is here and that means the return of one of Acadiana's favorite Mardi Gras balls.

Beads for Less presents the Krewe De Bayou’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Mardi Gras Ball on Friday, February 17, 2017 at the Double Tree by Hilton on Pinhook Rd in Lafayette. Doors will open at 6:30pm.

This year's theme is "Hollywood Walk of Fame", so dress for the red carpet and get ready to party the night away. Formal attire and themed costumes are encouraged.

The night will feature a Table Decorating Contest, Costume Contest, along with one of the hippest party bands, Louisiana Red, providing the music for dancing and passing a good time with your significant sweetie, or a table full of party people that love the Mardi Gras season.
