TONIGHT! 12th Night: A Midwinter Night’s Dream
January 5, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - January 6, 2016 @ 2:00 am
You are cordially invited to attend A Midwinter Night’s Dream: The 3rd Annual 12th Night Parade and Costume Ball – presented by Krewe du Bisoux!
We are returning in the darkest depths of winter to bring some magic to you: frost-spangled fairytale visions to dazzle your eyes, wild music to get the blood pumping in your veins, and luscious libations to make it all seem like a marvelous fantasy! 12th Night kicks off the Carnival season, and welcomes the light back into the world in true Crescent City tradition! It’s time to fire up your glue guns and don your most elaborate finery, your shimmering sequins, fanciful furs, velvet masques, and extravagant headdresses. We know you can bring it, and we love to see you do what you do!
Join the parade and dance down the street with Minor Mishap Marching Band through East Austin to our gorgeous new venue: a sparkling jewel tucked away in an enchanted garden lit by fairy fires. Explore the mysteries inside our fabulous VIP lounge (for members of the fairy court and highfalutin’ otherworldly denizens – like yourself!), including complimentary food, special libations, and an exclusive performance by Justin Sherburn (www.montopolismusic.com) just for the VIP attendees.
We’ll be swaying and stompin’ and dancing and shakin’ to the tunes of the East Side Dandies and Dj-Dangit, and Rebecca Havemeyer will be residing over the coronation of King and Queen!
There will libations, King Cake, a photobooth, heaters and fires to keep us warm when we aren’t dancin’, and much much more. Tickets can be purchased here! tiny.cc/12thnight
