The 2018 Eureka Springs Mardi Gras season is off to a fun and food filled start! The annual Taste of N’Awlins was held at the Grand Central Hotel and Taverne. A large crowd of people dressed spent a few hours mingling, listening to wonderful music, getting a taste of New Orleans beignets, coffee and gumbo, and got the chance to spend time with the 2018 royal court. This fun meet and greet has grown over the years and this year was no different. The room was filled with beaded party-goers. The fun has only begun, Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler à Eureka Springs, Arkansas!
