The Mardi Gras Masquerade brings together the traditional celebrations of Mardi Gras with the world of comics, movies, television, toys, anime, manga and video games.

PAC-MAN™ will serve as Grand Marshal to kick off the event leading a traditional New Orleans Street band. Party the night away with a live DJ, dancing, bowling and gameplay. Sip on Mardi Gras inspired cocktails, such as Hurricanes and Grenades and indulge in classic New Orleans food with a twist. Guests can try their hand at new and classic arcade games with complimentary gameplay and bowling throughout the night in Level 257’s upscale resto-lounge playground. Spot prizes will be handed out to guests for anything from high scores to dancing prowess.

Showcase your drawing skills with a drawing contest at 8:00 PM for a second chance to win one 3-Day Ticket.
