Mardi Gras Mayhem – Opening

May 19, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Camels, marching girls, lifesavers and clowns made their way down Vulcan Street during the Moruya Mardi Gras held during the 1960s and 1970s. The Wild Man From Bendethera frightened the children, while Lady Godiva tried to shock the crowds lining the street.

The Moruya and District Historical Society presents Mardi Gras Mayhem, a photographic exhibition featuring wonderful images that capture the event’s colour and vitality. The community spirit that made the Mardi Gras so successful is obvious.

The exhibition is open at the Moruya Museum during these hours –

Saturday 19 May: 11 am – 4 pm.; Wednesday 20 May: 11 am – 2 pm.; Friday 22 May: 11 am – 2 pm. and Saturday 23 May: 11 am – 2 pm.

Don’t miss out on this celebration of a truly remarkable community event.
