48th Annual Greasing of the Poles
48th Annual Greasing of the Poles
Royal Sonesta New Orleans will host its annual “Greasing of the Poles” at 10 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 24. The public is invited to gather at the main entrance of the recently renovated hotel at 300 Bourbon Street to view the Mardi Gras spectacle. This year's theme, “Greasing Goes Gold,” is inspired by the fun excitement and unique legacy of all that’s special about Mardi Gras, including the brightest of the three colors of Carnival—purple for justice, green for faith and gold for power. Special guests, event participants and the gathering crowd are all invited and encouraged to come decked out in shining and shimmering golden costumes or attire. This year, WGNO ABC 26’s Kenny Lopez will serve as master of ceremonies.
