Opportunities Unlimited Celebrates Mardi Gras

Residents at Opportunities Unlimited kicked off Sioux City's annual Mardi Gras celebrations today. The Twelfth Night Revelers from our sister city of Lake Charles, Louisiana, stopped by for a show this afternoon. The Twelfth Night Revelers are a non-profit organization. Its aim is to bring joy and merriment while promoting Southwest Louisiana and Mardi Gras. Founded in 1991, the group takes part in the 12th Night festivities of Mardi Gras each February, then travels cross-country to teach the true meaning of Mardi Gras by performing at various events year round.
