“It was a night beyond my expectations. People didn’t just show up- they showed out. Everyone came dressed to impress and have fun,” said Executive Director of Vicksburg Convention Center Erin Southard.

The highlight of the evening was announcing Launa Moore as the 2022 Mardi Gras Jester. Jester nominees were chosen based on their community involvement and their tireless efforts to be champions for Vicksburg.

“It’s evident from the attendance that people are ready to get out, mingle and celebrate after 2 years of quarantines and social distancing,” stated Southard.

Tickets for next year’s ball are expected to go quickly.
