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.

Carnival Season And Mardi Gras Festivities Begin January 6

Mardi Gras Day is February 28 this year, but that's not when you want to start getting involved in the festivities. The actual Carnival Season begins each year on January 6, which is also Three King's Day or Feast of the Epiphany.

The Mardi Gras krewe of The Phunny Phorty Phellows will be riding the streetcar tonight to start off the season. 

They'll be in the Uptown section of the city and heading down St. Charles Avenue on a streetcar starting at 7PM. This krewe has a tradition of satire and fun as opposed to the regal presentation presented by the Krewe of RexCheck out their website for more details at: http://www.phunnyphortyphellows.com


Parades from several krewes and clubs will be running every day through to Mardi Gras.
