When: January 6th, 2017
Where: SCANDALS , 11 S Grove St
Why: You might be wondering, “Why on earth would a plastic baby be inside of a cake?”
Well, the baking of King Cakes is a tradition that begins on King’s Day (Twelfth Night), at the start of the Mardi Gras season.
This years parade theme will be “X” to celebrate our 10th year!
A tiny baby, just like the ones you see here, is baked into the cake. Whomever holds the piece of cake containing the baby is regarded as our next KING! A position not to be held lightly. There are lots of responsibilities that come from such power.
Would YOU like a chance to be Royal?
Take your chances on grabbing the “Baby from the Cake” Ceremony and join Asheville Mardi Gras at the venue “SCANDALS”, located 11 Grove Street downtown Asheville, on January 6th.
The party starts at 7 pm and the dancing continues until midnight. This event will be $10 at the door, or FREE to all active 2017 AMG Members.
