This animal-themed fiesta is the annual fundraiser for the Tristate Noah Project, a no-kill rescue with the ultimate goal of becoming the first free-roaming sanctuary in the Tristate for farm and domestic animals. Become your favorite animal with the help of resident face painters, and preserve the moment in a masquerade-themed photo booth. Locally based belly dance and music troupe the Keshvar Project performs throughout the evening, and DJ Mowgli keeps the party going all night long. Ticket price includes lite bites, a silent auction and a cash bar.
7 p.m.-midnight Saturday. $25. Leapin Lizard Gallery, 726 Main St., Covington, Ky., tristatenoahproject.com.
