Insider Tip to Eureka Springs Mardi Gras:

Go to the Blacklight Ball! Anticipated by Eurekans ALL YEAR LONG. There is often face painting, awesome music, and more. Be sure to bring beads, clothes that glow, and your party shoes! (Bonus points if you are in costume!)

This is my best friend and I at last year’s Blacklight Ball!

Tickets to the Ball are $35 and may be purchased at
