Greenwood VFW hosting Mardi Gras-themed party

Revelers can ring in the new year Mardi Gras style with a party thrown by a local VFW post.

Greenwood VFW Post 5864 will host their annual New Year’s Eve Party from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday.

Tickets for the event are $25 each and include music, food, champagne for a toast, and favors. If interested in the music only, the price is $10 to cover the cost of “The Luke-Carol Project Band.”

The theme of this year’s event is “Mardi Gras” and partiers are encouraged to dress in the theme.

The meal includes New York strip steak, baked potato, green beans, corn, salad, roll, butter and dessert. At the end of the evening, biscuits and gravy will be served.

Tickets are available at the post, 333 S. Washington St., after 2 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
