Have you missed all of the festivities that surround Mardi Gras? The Hilton Riverside Krewe has also missed some of the fun, so they decided to create a little Mardi Gras family fun with the Hilton Krewe of Shoebox Contest. The contest is free to enter for U.S. Residents, but the Hilton does ask for a donation to the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation to help support the hospitality community which has been devastated by COVID-19. Plus, there will be a lot of great prizes to win – See all details – HERE.
At Hilton Riverside New Orleans we know we can’t celebrate Mardi Gras as we traditionally do this year. What we can celebrate is the great Mardi Gras traditions of Self-expression, Creativity, and Giving back to our community. ~ Hilton Riverside
