Join us our days grow longer for March Madness! It's time to slake off that cabin fever, toast the longer days and welcome the sun once more to our fair lands. And what could be more welcoming that a Masque Ball complete with masks and fun headwear? This year the Mad Hatter will be roaming through the hall trying to find anyone as mad as she is. She'll be giving out special tokens for the maddest of the mad so everyone will know that yes you too are off your rocker!
Events to include: Mask making. Either bring your own or make one there. Bead voting i.e. use the beads you're given to vote for your favorite Outrageous Hat, and silly poems in any mode.
Contests: Mad Hatter's Whim: Most Outrageous Hat (does not need to be period), Prettiest finger food presentation, and the best use of the color Purple in any mode.
Location: Jewel Lake Parish, 3833 Strawberry
Take Dimond to Jewel Lake, north to Strawberry, or Minnesota to Raspberry, turn left on Jewel Lake, and left on Strawberry.
