Mardi Gras in the Rockies has a schedule of family-friendly activities that includes parades, crawfish boils, a fantastic movie lineup, mask-making, and lots of live music from some foot-stomping, finger-snapping Louisiana bands. Not only that, but Gyth Rigdon, who hails from Louisiana himself, will perform a live concert at the resort on Fat Tuesday, February 25, 2020! Rigdon was the second runner up on “The Voice” in 2019 and has been wowing audiences with his charming country voice since the age of 15. His singing career, which spans more than a decade, has led him to the stage with the likes of Jake Owen and Gary Allen! He’ll be playing at the Angel Fire Community Center on February 25, 2020 at 6:30 p.m., with a Jambalaya dinner happening in conjunction, and proceeds benefiting the first chamber music festival in New Mexico, created to foster the artistic talent in rural northern New Mexico communities.

“The best part of celebrating Mardi Gras here at Angel Fire Resort is you get all of the festivities of the Louisiana holiday, but without the chaos of The French Quarter,” stated Greg Ralph, Director of Marketing, Angel Fire Resort. “Our goal is to bring the best of Fat Tuesday, the costumes, beads, parades, live music, and Cajun-inspired food but in a clean family-friendly, beautiful, ski mountain environment.” Angel Fire Resort will host the five-day Mardi Gras in the Rockies event from Friday, February 21 to Wednesday, February 26, 2020, including live bands each night at The Village Haus and Chiantis. Family-friendly movies will be showing in the Lodge at Angel Fire Resort, and the kids will love the Nerf Gun War, Kids Parade, mask-making, and the town parade! Likewise, the crawfish boil and King’s Cake Pancake Breakfast won’t be hard to take.
