Tina Knowles celebrated her birthday over the weekend with a old time News Orleans masquerade ball.  Bey and Solange picked the perfect city, as the Big Easy is famously known for the place to party.  The a-list guests arrived by horse carriage with their masks and all ready to get things turned-up.

Word has it the super swanky formal bash at Muriel's restaurant cost upwards of $100,000.  In between prepping for the massive parle' the two sisters enjoyed some down town as they were spotted riding bikes through the Crescent city, posing for pics with a local New Orleans second line band, shopping for trinkets and more.

The Knowles ladies were spotted yesterday in the French Quarter posing with a second line band and hitting up Fleurty Girl shop for some New Orleans trinkets yesterday.  B By the way, Bey has become quite the party planner as she and Jay just rented out the entire Jungle Island in Miami for Blue Ivy's 2nd birthday bash this week.
