BRECKENRIDGE, Colo.— Each year, New Orleans visitors and Mardi Gras lovers take over Breckenridge with masks, boas, beads, music and revelry to commemorate the carnival season. Breckenridge will kick off Mardi Gras in style from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, February 21, with its third annual Bacchus Ball at Beaver Run Resort. The masquerade themed ball, produced by the Breckenridge Resort Chamber, will light up the night with live music from Chris Daniels and the Kings, hurricanes, “N’awlins” cuisine, king cakes, prizes, multitudes of beads, a cash bar and the crowning of the 2009 Rex and Queen.

In the spirit of an authentic New Orleans masquerade ball, Breckenridge welcomes visitors and locals to celebrate Mardi Gras at the town’s Bacchus Ball. The dress is mountain formal, but guests are encouraged to get into the masquerade carnival theme with costumes and masks. Beads, boas and masks will also be sold at the event. Tickets are available for $35 for a single ticket and $65 for a couples ticket, and they can be purchased online at or in-person at the Breckenridge Welcome Center.

The Bacchus Ball will be one in a series of Mardi Gras events in Breckenridge in 2009. In addition to the Ball, New Orleans’ own Dirty Dozen Brass Band will perform a FREE Lunde Gras Concert at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, February 23 at the Riverwalk Center. The Dirty Dozen revolutionized the New Orleans brass band style by incorporating funk and bebop, and they will groove Breck into the Mardi Gras spirit.

Breckenridge’s renowned Mardi Gras celebration will culminate with a festive Main Street procession at 4:30 p.m. on February 23 (Fat Tuesday) where procession-watchers will enjoy floats, costumed characters and a feast of beads for their evening festivities. Post-procession parties will be held at various restaurants and bars around town where party goers can kick off the night with drink specials, music and more.

Visit or call 877.593.5260 for more information on Breckenridge’s Mardi Gras and to book a Mardi Gras vacation package for four people. The package includes five nights of lodging, Bacchus Ball tickets, snowmobiling, lift tickets and all the fun that comes with Mardi Gras for only $124 per person per night.
