Venetian Masquerade Ball
COSTUME NIGHT — Friday, September 15th
A masquerade ball is an event in which the participants attend in costume wearing a mask.
Masquerade balls were extended into costumed public festivities in Italy during the 16th century Renaissance. They were generally elaborate dances and were particularly popular in Venice. They have been associated with the tradition of the Venetian Carnival. We encourage you to wear a costume to reflect our theme – the wilder, the better!!
If you or your companion have any food allergies, please email Concrete Ontario at [email protected] and/or contact Karen Iacobellis at The Rosseau at either 705-765-7027 or [email protected] directly. Please ensure you let them know what group you are with and do this in advance of arrival.
