tina knowles (60th b-day-instagram)*This past Saturday night in New Orleans, Tina Knowles celebrated her 60th birthday and it looks like everyone had a ball!

Apparently Madame Tina and daughter Solange made a grand entrance, while Beyonce supposedly snuck in through a side door.

A marching band led the way as Solange and Tina showed up to tons of fanfare outside the masquerade bash on elaborate horse-drawn carriages, reports TMZ.

The guest list included Kelly Rowland, Monica, Jennifer Hudson and of course Jay Z.  The affair was thrown at  Muriel’s Jackson Square and reportedly cost Beyone and Solange at least $100k.

Beyonce was even elusive inside, but via IOnstagram she was seen in the pic above.
