Email News Alerts

Catfish, gator, Louisiana jambalaya and Bourbon Street meatballs are just a few of the New Orleans-style dishes on the menu at this year's Ottertail Lions Mardi Gras.


Food like this is hard to find in Minnesota. This rare chance to test your taste buds will start at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Ottertail Community Center. Following a social hour, a buffet will be held from 6-8 p.m.

There will also be games, prizes, horse races and a full service bar.
