Mardi Gras is upon us friends! Last year was our first year in Lousiana and we only attended two parades, this year we hope to attend more and have friends and family join us. Mardi Gras is always on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, and can fall on any Tuesday between February 3 and March 9 (depending on the date of Easter, and Ash Wednesday). We’ll be wearing the classic colors of Mardi Gras colors (purple, green and gold, symbolizing justice, faith and power) up until Ash Wednesday!
I will be adding more parades so check back often. If you come across a parade that I have missed in our area, please email me to at email@example.com – Thanks everyone!
