The fun begins the moment you stop at the bead station to grab a handful of colorful beads to throw around your neck. The brewery will be bathed in vibrant Mardi Gras colors. Start the afternoon with a trip to the cash/credit bar for one of Makai’s amazing craft beers or a glass of wine if you prefer. Next, peruse the gift baskets that will be up for raffle. Hold onto your ticket stub for a chance to win door prizes throughout the event.
Outside, the Beyond the Bayou food truck for a bowl of chicken and smoked sausage jambalaya. And don’t forget the King Cake sweets!
Then, get ready to enjoy some live music from the Sea & Sand Band! They’ll keep the music going throughout the event playing a variety of music from old standards, R&B, jazz, rock, and beach music, so they have all your musical tastes covered. Bring your folding chairs and enjoy the music.
