Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction Celebrates Mardi Gras
Louisiana’s 1st Choice Auto Auction (LAFCAA) and its customers will celebrate Mardi Gras in a big way at the auction’s 2nd annual Rockin’ Mardi Gras Party and Sale, set for Monday and Tuesday, February 24th and 25th. The two day event will combine the sights, music and food of Mardi Gras with a 1,000 vehicle auction, and is expected to draw buyers and sellers from throughout the South.
The festivities begin at 6pm on Monday evening, February 24th with LAFCAA’s 2nd Annual Rockin’ Mardi Gras Party, which will be held at Chesterton Square in nearby Ponchatoula. Guests will enjoy a Cajun buffet, traditional King Cake, and a full bar (2 free drinks per guest, additional drink tickets $5 each). Entertaining the partygoers will be the Cronkites, a band of renown in the auction world, headed by auction veteran Greg Mahugh. Following the Cronkites, guests will rock out to the sounds of Bag of Donuts, a popular New Orleans band. Each guest at the party will receive custom Mardi Gras beads, and every dealer will be entered into a drawing for $1,000 and a chance
to be crowned King of the Krewe of 1st Choice. Everyone will also enjoy a photo booth complete with Mardi Gras props.
On Tuesday, February 25th, LAFCAA’s Rockin’ Mardi Gras Sale begins with a free breakfast, and the first of 1000 cars crossing the block at 8:30 am. Featured consignment will include vehicles from ARI and Credit Acceptance/VRS, plus a huge run of select trades from area auto dealers including Ray Brandt Group, the Bohn Zone and Best Chevrolet, just to mention a few. Free lunch and King Cake will be served in the lanes. Customers wearing their custom beads to the Mardi Gras Sale on the 25th will earn $10,000 in John Dough, a customer rewards program unique to LAFCAA.
