Currency Guide - New Orleans Mardis Gras

Fat Tuesday, New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans Mardis Gras

On the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, bead-draped Louisianians and their guests hit the streets for a day of fun and frivolity.  No two places celebrate it in exactly the same way.  In the New Orleans area, more than 60 parades roll during the two weeks before Fat Tuesday.  Slidell and Madisonville celebrate with colorful boat parades, and Monroe-West Monroe, Lake Charles and Houma have lighted boat parades. Shreveport-Bossier City’s and Lafayette’s Mardi Gras traditions focus on family activities, and the Alexandria-Pineville area celebrates with a children’s parade for the young and the young at heart.
