Mardi Gras Party at Turtle Ridge Gallery

Put on a mask and pretend to be someone or somewhere else. It’s time for the Sixth Annual Frostbite Party and Sale at Turtle Ridge. Over the years, Turtle Ridge has had different themes such as “Put on your High Heels,” “Mellow Yellow,” and “Chase Away the Winter Blues.” In 2015 the theme will be “Mardi Gras”. Historically Mardi Gras is a festival of excess and indulgence before Lent, a season of fasting. It is time to chase away the winter doldrums with a winter festival centered on bright colors, sparkly beads, fun food and drink and lots of prizes. Every year, many new designs and samples are available at low prices. Refreshments will be served and the masks are free to take home.

Turtle Ridge Gallery is located at 11736 Mink River Road in Ellison Bay. The event takes place Jan. 30 from 4-8 pm.
