Mardi Gras — Everything That You Need to Know From Beads to King Cakes

 

Mardi Gras is my favorite time of the year! I went to Mardi Gras in New Orleans a few years ago. Twice actually. It was a lot of fun. One trip was what I call the "Parade Route" because the entire 4 days was spent going to parade after parade. The next trip to New Orleans was all about seeing the downtown festivities and oh what an experience that was. Now Texarkana has its own Mardi Gras celebration. This year it will be held on Saturday, March 1 in Downtown Texarkana.
