We had a fabulous time this past Friday evening, celebrating the soon-to-be-completed Mississippi Aquarium. This year's Splash Bash fund-raising event, hosted by Hancock Whitney, was a huge success. Vendors from all over the Gulf Coast participated as sponsors, generously provided tasty culinary eats and treats. Charbroiled oysters, crab legs, and custom shrimp tacos were a few items featured on the all-you-can-eat food feature tables. Infinite cocktails were also offered to guests as well as live entertainment. The calypso-styled band at the gate was awesome, and the headliners inside the venue really reved up the energy, performing today's top hits and the classics that got folks dancing.
In the VIP section, guests enjoyed a private bar and restroom thanks to our 7-station. In the main area of the party were two trailers for guests to use. I actually left the VIP area to snap a few selfies in our lovely ADA trailer, which was getting some super positive feedback. Any time I go to these events, I love putting myself in the crowd, pretending not to be the owner. You really get a feel for how much folks love a restroom acting as sort of a fly on the wall. :)
We hope to return next year and wish the Aquarium to come much success in its upcoming relaunch. I cannot wait to bring my son and introduce him to the unfamiliar, yet interesting, aquatic world!
