Bead Bash

More than a thousand revelers flocked to Rhodes-on-the-Pawtuxet for VSA arts of Rhode Island’s sixteenth annual Mardi Gras ball—one of the biggest parties outside of Louisiana featuring Cajun and Zydeco music. Attendees hit the dance floor in creative costumes, sampled Cajun and Creole cuisine and raised thousands of dollars for the organization’s arts programs for children and adults with disabilities.
