Local Mardi Gras revelers can take in a parade and participate in a “Meet Me on Bourbon Street” party on Feb. 9, a fundraiser for the annual Jazz in June festival.

“Meet Me on Bourbon Street” will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at Shevaun Williams & Associates Commercial Photography, 221 E Main St., which is on the route for the downtown parade, which begins at sundown.

Party highlights will include a formal announcement of the Jazz in June musicians, Odette and Andy Horton's remembrances of New Orleans and the carnival season, recorded music of the Jazz in June 2013 musicians and highlights from past Jazz in June performances.

Tickets are $50 per person and available at www.jazzinjune.org. Participants must be 21 or older.

“The parade and ‘Meet Me on Bourbon Street' party provide the community with two fun events on the same night with fantastic Mardi Gras synergy,” said Jazz in June President Michael Lewchuk

The party is sponsored by Shevaun Williams & Associates, Transcript Press and Republic Bank & Trust.
