Mardi Gras begins this year on Tuesday, March 1. Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, precedes Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. Traditionally, the days leading up to Lent are meant for enjoying rich, fatty foods. In New Orleans, Mardi Gras celebrations have evolved to include street parties, lavish dinners, and masquerades.
Mardi Gras carnival festivities draw crowds in New Orleans and around the world. Streets are awash in vibrant hues as people don elaborate ensembles to dance and make merry in celebrations. Whether you’ll be in NOLA this year or celebrating closer to home, break out a sexy pair of high heeled shoes to complete your outfit for the biggest party of the year.
