Mardi Gras Madness Back to Blog
Now here’s a little known fact: Mardi Gras actually started here, instead of in New Orleans. Of course, the New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration has generally overshadowed Mobile’s celebration (on account of the fact that the folks in New Orleans do their party on a much larger scale). Personally, I prefer Mobile’s celebration. Not too many people, but the floats are still cool.
The floats are all I really care about. I’m not too into the whole figthing-for-a-plastic-necklace thing. And I don’t really–gasp, shudder–like moon pies. Sorry, but I don’t. I just like seeing the floats.
If I make it to any of the upcoming parades, I’ll post some pictures. In the meantime, here’s some info on Mobile’s Mardi Gras celebration.
