I haven’t been able to resist jumping the gun and buying my first king cake before the official start of Carnival season on January 6th. I completely blame the nice people at Rouse’s Supermarkets for putting together such an inviting display table to greet me as soon as I walk in the door.
In the event that you prefer to wait for your first slice, don’t miss the King Cake Kick off party on Sunday, January 29th from 12:00-4:00p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in Algiers Point.
There will be hot dogs & chili, baked beans, king cake (of course!), soft drinks, local beers and live music from Benny Grunch and Da Bunch. Open to the public, it’s a family friendly event perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
Trinity Lutheran is located at the corner of Eliza & Olivier Streets
