Happy Mardi Gras Everyone! And Happy Fat Tuesday! Since I can't be in New Orleans celebrating, I'll do my best to pretend I'm there through pictures and video on my blog!
When I was in sixth grade, I was lucky enough to get to go to Mardi Gras with some of my aunts, uncles and cousins! It was so much fun and I really want to go back soon! Now that I am older, I would love to get the full experience, including downtown and Bourbon Street during this crazy celebration!
Can't have Mardi Gras without King Cake! The tradition is that whoever gets the piece with the baby in it has to host the next Mardi Gras party!
Parades means beads, beads, and more beads, along with so much more that gets thrown out from the floats, including cups, stuffed animals, swords, hats, moon pies, sunglasses, balls, and lots more!

Video courtesy of my cousin who is there showing the longest float this year! The young blond cuties on the shoulders in the video happen to be my little cousins celebrating their first Mardi Gras!
Do any of you celebrate Mardi Gras? Have any of you been there to experience the real thing?
