March 03 : 05 days till Mardi Gras

Did you know that historians differ about how exactly Mardi Gras was brought to the United States, but all agree it was due to French influence in the territory of Louisiana?

Some think the French explorer Sieur d’Ibervilled introduced Mardi Gras when he landed in what is today Louisiana in 1699. Others say that early French settlers to Louisiana introduced Mardi Gras to the Americas. While others argue that the first Mardi Gras was celebrated by French soldiers back in 1703, in the city of Mobile, Alabama. Either way, by the 1820s, Mardi Gras was firmly entrenched in New Orleans culture.

Celebrated throughout the Gulf Coast, Mardi Gras is practically synonymous with New Orleans. But you don’t have to live in Creole Country to enjoy a good party. In fact, if you want to get in on the fun, just come join us for our Mardi Gras Ball! We will be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fun fact each day as we countdown to Mardi Gras, March 08th!
