Revelers turn heads at Antigua’s version of Mardi Gras
Costumed revelers — and at least one pimped-out piñata — provided Antigua’s down-sized but festive version of Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday night at the second annual Antigua Masquerade Ball.
An eye-catching assembly of plumed, beaked and beaded guests converged outside La Merced for a parade to the ruins of San José El Viejo, where the Venetian-style charity event was staged.
Dozens of participants enjoyed a night of fine dining, cocktails, music, an art auction and much more – all to support a cadre of nonprofits serving worthy cases in Guatemala.
As for the pimped-out piñata – well, she was smashing!
