    • 2018 Spanish Town Mardi Gras Ball:  Due to new permit requirements imposed upon SPLL by SMG, the River Center, Savor Catering and the state board of Alcohol and Tobacco, which allows our ball attendees to bring in their own liquor and food, we have to change our attendee age to 21 and over.

      The board has discussed making this a 21 and over event for a couple of years, but the increase in underage drinking at the event along with the ATC permit requirement has made it mandatory.

      No one under 21 will be allowed to enter, even if they have a ball ticket.
