What to Expect at the Barn Bash

The Barn Bash is held at the Aquarius Float Barn 1517 31st , a 20,000-square-foot warehouse where many of the Mardi Gras floats are stored. This gives you a unique opportunity to see the floats up close before the big parade.

In addition to the floats, the Barn Bash also features a live band, food, beer, and wine. There’s plenty of room to dance and party, and you’re sure to have a blast. Bring a chair if you want to sit down.

Your admission price includes a meal catered by a local favorite La Estacion. (7 – 8:30pm or until gone), and your choice of beer, wine, or soft drinks.  NOTE: TABC rules only allow us to serve an individual 2 drinks at a time.

The highlight of the event starts at 9:00 p.m., when the Krewe members board their floats to throw beads to the crowd.  The challenge is to see who can catch the most and fanciest beads.

Have a Great Time at the Barn Bash!
