, /PRNewswire/ — On Fat Tuesday, the Krewe of Watercrest Winter Park Assisted Living and Memory Care brought the lively spirit and festivity of Mardi Gras to the residents, families and friends of their luxury senior living community.
For an entire day, Watercrest Winter Park transformed into a New Orleans themed attraction complete with the sights, sounds, and tastes of the Mardi Gras Carnival season. The Watercrest walls were lined with traditional Mardi Gras décor in brightly colored purples, golds and greens with feathers, doubloons, costume masks, and oodles of plastic beads strewn about the rooms. Party-goers donned their sequined jackets, masquerade masks and feather boas for dancing to the upbeat tunes of local entertainers ‘The Sweet Talkers’ and wetting their whistle with Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane cocktails, New Orleans Abita beers and the crowd favorite, Jell-O shooters!
The highly-skilled culinary team at Watercrest Winter Park wowed the crowd with a feast befitting the Cajun celebration. The Fat Tuesday dishes included seafood gumbo, fried oyster po’ boys, jambalaya, low-country shrimp and grits, hot baked crawfish dip, garlic cheese biscuits, Louisiana sunburst salad and the epic King Cake.
