Experience the best of Mardi Gras at SKYCITY this October

SKYCITY Auckland will come alive with the sights and sounds of Mardi Gras from 1 October to 2 November, inspired by the very best elements from the legendary street carnivals of Rio, Sydney and New Orleans.

Join the street party every Saturday night from 8:30pm – 9pm when the parade of drummers, stilt-walkers, fire artists, drag queens and New Zealand’s best Samba dancers weave their way along Federal Street to the main plaza at the base of the Sky Tower for the finale performance.

In addition to free Saturday street parades, every Friday and Saturday night people can groove to the sounds of a live DJ in the plaza from 7pm – midnight, continuing the party vibe throughout the evening.

The SKYCITY Breakers will be getting into the spirit with a special ‘Mardi Gras Meet the Team’ event on Friday October 17 at 10:30pm after their first home game at Vector Arena. Fans can enjoy post-match banter with D’Arcy Waldergrave and SKYCITY Breakers players, including a chance to win a Vespa Scooter!

On Friday 31 October join DJs Tim Phin, Beat Mafia and Mike Ross for the ultimate Halloween Party at bar twentyone. With face painting and photo booths it’s the only way to send off Mardi Gras month! Entry is free, R18 age restriction for twentyone applies.

More than $265,000 in prizes will be given away during the month. Visit www.skycityauckland.co.nz/mardigras for more details.
