|Mardi Gras is a huge celebration, a way to party down and really enjoy yourself before Ash Wednesday.
Louisiana usually celebrates by throwing big parades, dancing, eating King Cakes, and basically having lots of fun. Usually people only think of parades and beads when they think of Mardi Gras though.
