Bootheel Youth Museum's Seventh Annual Mardi Gras
These photos were taken at the Bootheel Youth Museum's Seventh Annual Mardi Gras on Saturday, Feb. 27. Guests were treated to a buffet of Cajun-style seafood, appetizers and desserts. GumboHead, a zydeco band from St. Louis, provided the music for the evening. In addition, guests had the opportunity to reap some great bargains during the live and silent auctions. Opulent décor completed the party mood in the New Orleans style. Over 550 tickets were sold with the proceeds benefitting the BYM's programs and operations.
