The church returns to offering this winter escape with all the hilarity that has been part of Mardi Gras for years.

Rick Sivers returns as master of ceremonies and bring his blend of stories and character portrayals to entertain everyone.

The Sounds of Brass, who first performed for a Mardi Gras more than 10 years ago, will return with some snappy numbers for the dinner guests.

This year, the Mardi Gras has been combined with the church’s Valentine’s spaghetti supper, so it will be dinner theater with a combination of food, jokes and music for everyone to enjoy.

Immediately following dinner will be the crowning of the Bishop of Fools, the Lord of Misrule and the Abbot of Unreason from the dinner guests and then will come the show and lots of laughs.

Reservations for the Mardi Gras can be made by contacting the church office at 343-3465.

Seating is limited, so make your reservations early.

Cost for dinner and the show is $15 per person.

Proceeds will benefit the work of the church.

The Minetto United Methodist Church is located at the intersection of State Route 48 and County Route 8 in Minetto and is fully handicap accessible.
