Even though the parades have been cancelled for the Mardi Gras New Orleans celebrations for 2021 due to COVID-19, the official day of Fat Tuesday remains the same, February 16. 

Keep watching this blog for updates on virtual celebrations hosted by different Mardi Gras krewes as well as ideas for throwing your own Mardi Gras parties.

Mardi Gras Girl Blog 2020 Update

 

This year has been a challenge for us all around the world. My condolences go out to all who have lost loved ones in the pandemic outbreak this year. 

The Mardi Gras Girl Blog will continue to post information on Mardi Gras and keep readers up with changes in the schedule of parades. They won't be during the Carnival season as usual but possibly in May. 

Although travel to New Orleans is something to look forward to in the near future,  this blog will feature ways to bring the joy and festivity of Mardi Gras to your home.

Mardi Gras parties where masks and colored beads as well as traditional New Orleans cuisine can be prepared can be a way to have fun especially during a time when some fun is needed.

Any comments? Please post below.

Happy Mardi Gras Day 2017!




Hey, the big day has arrived. Today is Mardi Gras Day! This is the last day of the Carnival Season and celebrations. There's still time for you to enjoy the festivities if you're in the area. Lots of music clubs in the French Quarter, on Frenchmen Street and throughout the city will be partying until midnight tonight. After that it's Ash Wednesday and you'll have to wait until next year to do it again! 

Here's some Mardi Gras music from Professor Longhair to help you get into the mood. Enjoy! Happy Mardi Gras, yeaaaah!!!

Make sure you try to take in the parades and festivities the two weeks prior to Fat Tuesday, that's the highlight of the Carnival Season.

Also Mardi Gras Day is the last day for celebrating. Everyone's either passed out, asleep or in church the next day since that's Ash Wednesday!
