Vail was hit with a spicy taste of New-Orleans-style fun with the return of CarniVail Fat Tuesday celebrations today. Guests enjoyed Mardi Gras merriment and all the Cajun fixin’s from a legendary crawfish boil to live music and après parties galore.
Miss out on the fun? Here's some scenes from this year's celebrations. And if you're fixin to take in more of that CO-LA connection, tickets went on sale today for the 2017 Vail Jazz Gala: From Bridge Street to Bourbon Street. The event will take place on the evening of Monday, July 10, and will feature an alluring silent auction, extraordinary live auction, and a spectacular performance by "The Voice of New Orleans," jazz legend John Boutté. Boutté will be joined by alumni of the Vail Jazz Workshop, bringing together a celebrated legend of jazz history with the genre's next generation of superstars.
