For some of the best people watching ever, plan your visit around our Mardi Gras season. On Fat Tuesday, you will see so many residents wandering the streets in dramatic colors of purple, green, and gold. Beyond people watching and parades passing by, we have some of the best food during Mardi Gras season. King Cake will sure turn your head and not to mention, we are in the prime time season of crawfish!
Here is a brief summary of the meaning “Fat” Tuesday …
In Louisiana, we celebrate Mardi Gras season. It is a popular cultural experience, but its roots trace back to eating richer, fatty foods in preparation for Lenten fasting on “Fat” Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.
Happy Fat Tuesday everyone, “Laissez les bon temps rouler”!
