The Krewe of the Mystic Inane
, a subkrewe of the satirical and raunchy Krewe du Viuex, holds its annual Cirque d'so Lame fundraiser
Saturday at St. Patrick's Park (across from the Mid-City Yacht Club). A campy, vulgar homage to sideshow attractions and fun, it features variations on picnic and carny games, such as the dunk booth, Ball Sack Races and Meth Mouth, in which contestants try to knock three "loose tooth" pins out of a giant mouth. New games include Bra Pong, The Money Shot and Shrinko and there's a Lard and Feather experience. More photos of games and attractions, including the birth canal experience, from recent year's after the jump.
Admission is $10 and includes unlimited beer while supplies last. There's also a VIP area, and $20 admission to the air conditioned trailer includes drinks and unlimited access to the waterslide. The event is cash-only.
The carnival is from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Carnival food is available for purchase and the food truck Electric Eggroll will be at the park. Costumes are welcome, and there are prizes for good outfits. Attendees must be at least 21 to enter.
