I love this time of year!  Mardi Gras is always full of excitement from the parades, parties, balls, chicken runs and good food.  It's the time of the year when Louisiana really gets to shine, by sharing our traditions and rich history with the world.  The word Mardi Gras, is French for Fat Tuesday meaning, the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before fasting for Lent.  The Mardi Gras season/carnival begins on or after the Epiphany or Kings day and culminates on the day before Ash Wednesday.
