In the United States, Mardi Gras draws millions of fun-seekers to New Orleans every year. Mardi Gras has been celebrated in New Orleans on a grand scale, with masked balls and colorful parades, since French settlers arrived in the early 1700s. Hidden behind masks, people were able to let their inhibitions go and behave raucously. Today, we have taken the masked theme and made it a fun theme for parties around the world! These masks on a stick from Party Oasis are a great masquerade party accessory at any Mardi Gras Event, masquerade themed Prom, sweet sixteen, quinceanera, quince, or ball.
