2018 Lake Ozark Mardi Gras Pub Crawl
Forget about driving. Leave your keys behind. Organizers of the 2018 Lake Ozark Mardi Gras Pub Crawl commissioned more than 30 buses to chauffeur crawlers from bar to bar. That includes stops at local hotels as well. With your wristband, you gain access to any of the bars along the crawl’s route. In addition to great drink specials for the night, each stop along the way offers different live entertainment. For example, watch the Catfish Willie Band perform at the Inn at Grand Glaize and then shuttle over to Wobbly Boots to listen to Vinyl Richy drop some sick beats until closing time.
Visit any of the participating bars/pubs/restaurants before the 17th to purchase your wristbands ahead of time. Did you decide to try the crawl at the last minute? Don’t worry. You can still purchase wristbands at any of these locations on the night of the event as well. Just remember to bring your ID with you. This is a strictly 21 & over event.
