Join us on Saturday, November 5, 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm at Mardi Gras World for the Crescent City Celebration: Creativity and all that Jazzgator

Mardi Gras World, located on the banks of the Mississippi River and less than a mile from the Hilton (bus transportation will be provided), will be the backdrop for our NAGC Convention Saturday evening events that include the E. Paul Torrance Creativity Keynote with Michele and Robert Root-Bernstein and Taste of Louisiana Reception.

Enjoy strolling through the actual sculpture and prop studios where artists and crews create world famous icons of Mardi Gras, from mega-floats with fiber optic lighting to breathtaking giant figures. From there you’ll be transported back in time to New Orleans’ only indoor antebellum mansion replica complete with brick walkways, moss-draped oaks, a starry night sky, and winding waterway. This is a once-in-a-lifetime evening for NAGC attendees!
