Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday and Carnival is right around the corner! Don’t miss out on the great opportunity to sponsor or host a cultural exchange event.  See a few of AAG’s recommendations:

  1. Host a Mask Decorating Party – All you need to do is determine a location, and send an evite. This is a festive occasion to talk about the history of Mardi Gras and a fun way to express their creativity. Click here for a list of supplies
  2. Share a King Cake – Ambitious? Try cooking one from scratch! Just a note this type of cake is associated in a number of countries with festival of Epiphany at the end of the Christmas season and in other place with the pre-Lenten celebrations of Mardi Gras or Carnival. Recipe can be found here
  3. Costume Fashion Show Contest –   What’s more exciting than getting dressed up? All you have to do is ensure there is a prize, state that all costumes should be PG-13 appropriate and makes sure to have lots of beads to toss at the feet to announce the winner.
