Mardi Gras, a.k.a. Fat Tuesday, is a Carnival celebration of food; a revelry before the first day of Lent; a final hurrah before forty days of fasting and abstinence—and boy, is it a wild festival in New Orleans. All in all, the festivities last two weeks, but culminate in bacchanalian parties and colorful parades during the five days surrounding Mardi Gras.
I choose this pin because a part of my book the two main characters go to new orleans right as mardi gras is happening and they talk about how wonderful and fun it is. so thispin just shows of what they might've excperinced while there
