"Everyone decks out in seersucker," says Sue Strachan, public relations director at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. "Suits, dresses, ties, umbrellas — if you can make it out of seersucker, they'll wear it."
Co-created by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and The Shops at Canal Place, the event features music by the Preservation Hall All-Stars featuring Tom Sancton and DJ Soul Sister. Included in that price are food and drink — including mint juleps and food from more than 20 vendors, such as The American Sector, La Thai, Delachaise and Baru.
"It's a great time, a great party and an affordable ticket," Strachan says.
