Mardi Gras is right around the corner - February 17th this year - and we can't wait for days filled with beads, king cake and costumes!! Our friends at National Geographic had a really nice article about the traditional Mardi Gras that is celebrated right here in Acadiana. If you friends and family that are not from Louisiana think that Mardi Gras is only celebrated in New Orleans with huge floats and girls flashing parade riders, send them this, and let them know how sweet it is to have our OWN traditional Courir de Mardi Gras celebration here in Cajun Country. Enjoy your carnival season, everyone!
