The Mardi Gras celebrations before the start of Lent may be most associated with New Orleans, Rio de Janeiro, and Quebec City, but Kinvara will be throwing its own Mardi Gras party as well.
The 2010 KAM Mardi Gras will take place at Kinvara Community Centre, on Saturday February 13. This year’s party is a charity event, featuring three live bands - Gort Afro-funk band Awsum Adudu, Kinvara country rockers Analogue Band, and bluegrass group Gone To Grass - dancing, food, licensed bar, and a fancy dress parade with prizes.
All proceeds will go to South Galway Flood Relief and the Gort Family Resource Centre. The fun starts at 8pm and admission is €20 (family ticket ) or €10/8 for a single ticket.
Tickets are available in advance from KAM (www.kamcollective.com, ) Healing Harvest, Kinvara (091 - 637176 ), Open Sesame, Gort (091 - 632778 ), Gort Credit Union (091 - 631250 ), Kinvara Credit Union (091 - 637154 ), and at the Gort Family Resource Centre (091 - 630902 ).
