The event will also feature live jazz music and dancing, a kids area, and a silent auction.

Mardi Gras 2014 will take place Tuesday, March 4th, from 5:30 PM to 9 PM at the Lubbock Civic Center Exhibit Hall. Tickets are $35 for adults and $10 for kids, and will also be available at the door for $40.
