Laissez les bon temps roulez
The true spirit of New Orleans is making its way north of the 48th parallel this year. A group of fun-loving Sandpoint business owners has been planning more than a year in advance for the first-ever Madcap Mardi Gras celebration from Friday, Feb. 28 through Fat Tuesday, March 4.
The party begins with a 12-hole, miniature golf scramble in a variety of downtown businesses and ends with the Fat Tuesday Finale in an assortment of local pubs. A highlight of the five-day celebration will be The Follies, put on by Angels Over Sandpoint, sure to be a popular crowd-pleaser.
Madcap will serve up many more cures for late winters cabin fever. While non-profit participants will benefit from a part of the proceeds, This is fun-raising, not fund-raising, said Marsha Ogilvie, committee chairman. Were all doing this just to have fun.
See what's goin' on for current goings on.
