HAPPY MARDI GRAS!!!

Recommended Posts

Keep in mind that these pictures are from the New Orleans Mardi Gras. Contrary to popular belief, New Orleans is not the Mardi Gras capital anymore. The Acadiana Mardi Gras celebrations are far more numerous and of a much better quality than New Orleans. Most Krewe's in Acadiana still follow the old customs. Only white men allowed to ride, all riders must be masked except for the Capitaine who only wears a cape with his costume, and they ask for a chicken from each house they stop by to put in the gumbo for the whole town at the end of the parade. And to top it all off they have the Louisiana Mardi Gras Association's King's Parade (In honor of King Gabriel) and the Queen's Parade on Lundi Gras (in honor of Queen Evangeline) in Lafayette, LA.
