After a two-hour ride through roaring crowds, it’s time to party with the Conde Explorers! The parade returns to the Mobile Civic Center, where riders leave the floats to head for the ball. Some members rent hotel rooms where they may change clothes, but many of us simply drive to the Convention Center directly from the parade.
What’s the ball dress code? Guests at the Conde Explorers ball wear white tie and tails or tuxedos for the men and full-length gowns for the ladies. Members may come in costume. Once inside, members and guests are seated together and there are no call-outs. Live music, tables of food, and an open bar guarantee that nobody is left out.
Tickets are available from float captains and board members, so get with them to purchase your tickets before they are all gone!
