Cane River Historical Park asking for used Mardi Gras beads | Arts & Culture
The Cane River Creole National Historical Park is asking folks to donate Mardi Gras beads from past events to the park to help decorate the entrance pavilion at Oakland Plantation during Mardi Gras season.
Nathan Hatfield, the Chief of Interpretation said, "Rather than throw away that stash of unwanted beads taking up room in your garage or closet, please donate them to the park."
Recycled Mardi Gras beads can be dropped off at 400 Rapides Drive in Natchitoches, or at Oakland Plantation located at 4386 Hwy. 292 Bermuda. Hatfield said his office can pick up the donations within the Natchitoches Parish area.
For more information on how to contribute to Oakland Plantation's Mardi Gras bead recycling program, call Nathan Hatfield at 318-356-8441.
Cane River Creole National Historical Park preserves over 62 acre of cultural landscape, 65 historic structures, an estimated 300,000 artifacts and many other unique resources.
