A little Mardi Gras fun before the Mardi Gras at the Peak Lodge tonight, and the feathers are going to fly! Twin Zips in South Ridge will be open for an hour to WOW VIP Passholders only, and anyone in Mardi Gras costume. If you’re in costume, you zip for free! Like anything good, this is worth both doing and watching.
- Après Ski Party at the Foggy Goggle, 3:00 p.m.–6:00 p.m.
Live entertainment from The Peach Eaters, not just an Allman Brothers Tribute Band, but an Allman Brothers experience.
- Fireworks, 8:30 p.m.
The fireworks are brought to us by RS Fireworks. Best spot to view? Undoubtedly the Foggy Goggle deck or slopeside at South Ridge!
- Mardi Gras Party at the Peak Lodge, doors open at 9:00 p.m.
You do not want to miss this party. So much happening, it will go down
in history. Richard Blanco, the youngest and first openly gay inaugural
poet who read at President Obama's second inauguration this month,
will kick off the evening at 9:30 sharp with a poem. Then, Boston-based
fashion show producer and backstage goddess Kathy Benharris and artist Andreza Moon, who specializes in creating living canvasses, will be on-site for a free-form fashion show with drop-dead sexy gorgeous beautiful models. You won't be left out. Get ready to be painted! And, of course, back by popular demand, we'll be dancing to the DJ stylings of Provincetown's famous DJ Maryalice from Boatslip Resort's legendary Tea Dance. Get ready...Bourbon Street meets Maine mountain peaks!
Proceeds will support Aids Action. Tickets are $25, and can be purchased by calling 800-543-2754.
