Partiers gathered for the 21st annual San Luis Salute Mardi Gras! Galveston celebration at the Galveston Island Convention Center at The San Luis Resort. The venue was transformed into a vision of outer space with a 35-foot spaceship suspended from the ceiling, a solar system floating overhead, 150-foot video walls broadcasting space vistas, a light display with space creatures, aerialists and more. Jason Derulo lit up the stage. Honorees were Zika researchers Dr. Mariano Garcia-Blanco, Dr. George Saade, Dr. Pei-Yong Shi and Dr. Nikos Vasilakis. Proceeds from the intergalactic evening will benefit Zika research at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.
