“Mardi Gras” In Louisiana, USA

A designed “vehicle” with many people on it

“Mardi Gras” is French for “Fat Tuesday” in English. Mardi Gras also called as Shrove Tuesday, which means confess on Tuesday.

It is related to religious obligation, where people in Louisiana “shrove” before fasting. The schedule of Mardi Gras is 47 days before Easter each year.

A strange “creature”

In Louisiana, Mardi Gras is occurring on any Tuesday from February third to March ninth. We celebrate Mardi Gras on February 3rd in this year (2018). We scheduled March 5th for Mardi Gras next year (2019).

Two adorned vehicles in carnival

Mardi Gras is happy day for me and many friends in Louisiana. We are happy to catch and collect beads throw down from vehicles during carnival.
