MardiGras2013It's almost here! Mardi Gras 2013 in New Orleans is on Tuesday, February 12th.

Mardi Gras or "Fat Tuesday" always begins the day before Ash Wednesday and the last day of Carnival season.  It is a celebratory event marked with music, food, parades, costumes and masks, parties, throws and much more.  Everyone is encouraged to wear a costume or at least to wear the official colors of purple, green, and gold.  In 1872 Rex, the King of the Carnival, selected the colors and in 1892 he assigned their meaning; purple represents justice, green is for faith and the color gold signifies power.

Start making your plans today to experience the party of a lifetime firsthand.
