More than 300 showed up for the annual celebration.
Mardi Gras drew more than 300 people to the The Elks Lodge, and St. Ann Arts and Cultural Center Saturday night, where the mystery man, King Jace XIX, was revealed.

Dave Richards of WOON radio, who sponsored the contest, invited the public to guess who is portraying the king, providing clues throughout the preparations for the party.
