Well Mardi Gras is still alive and kicking in Kansas City. As I stated in my previous post, we take time to celebrate this annual event at Holyfield Winery. It has become tradition for the Doghouse Daddies to provide the musical entertainment, and this year they did not disappoint. This band can really get the crowd engaged, and the dance floor soon becomes way too small.
Another tradition is for the annual march around the winery. At Michelle's request the band strikes up "When the Saints Go Marching In", and the crowd knows exactly what to do. The line swells, and heads out the side door for a brisk dance around the front of the building. Soon they reappear through another door and make their way back to the dance floor. Everyone finishes off the song and heads back to their tables for some refreshments.
Michelle keeps the crowd involved, while her father Les oversees the festivities. This duo has turned Holyfield into a destination winery with a myriad of unique events. Next weekend they will host a Valentine's event complete with dueling pianos. We expect it will be just as popular as Mardi Gras. During the summer they host a series of outdoor musical concerts, which offer a great way to view the vines on the grounds. They also host some Murder Mystery events throughout the year. Michelle does a great job of posting pictures from events on their Facebook page, so everyone has a chance to see all of the fun that was had.
So if you are looking for something to do, and a chance to be added to the Holyfield Winery Facebook Wall of Fame, be sure to check out their upcoming events. You can also find them at www.holyfieldwinery.com. We hope to see you there. Until we meet again, Cheers!
