Antigua Masquerade Ball on March 8
The second annual Antigua Masquerade Ball, a colorful, Venetian-style charity event, is coming to the ruins of San José El Viejo on Fat Tuesday, March 8.
In addition to costume contests, the ball will feature dining, cocktails, music and raffles. There will also be an auction of four unique pieces of art, which the artists will “speed paint” in only 90 minutes.
Event proceeds will support an array of children’s charities, according to event organizer Lyne Bissonnette.
Doors will open at 6 p.m., although participants are invited to gather at La Merced church at 5 p.m. to parade down Fifth Avenue to the venue.
Only 150 tickets (Q500 each) will be sold. The price includes two drinks, food, entertainment and setup. Music and dancing continue until 11 p.m.
Participating NGOs are selling tickets;
