Shreveport, Louisiana Presents a Master Class in Celebrating Mardi Gras



Mardi Gras is a fascinating tradition dating back thousands of years. In French, Mardi means Tuesday and Gras is ?Fat?. Therein lies the name Fat Tuesday. The inaugural Mardi Gras celebration in the United States commenced on March 3, 1699, on land near present-day New Orleans, Louisiana. However, Mobile, Alabama is recognized as having the first organized Mardi Gras celebration in America which began in 1703. Today?s celebration, known as the Carnival season, consists of dining on rich, satiating cuisine, partying day and night, enjoying parades, and dressing in spectacular formal wear for the most elaborate balls imaginable. Depending upon the locale, Mardi Gras can take place from three days to three months and culminate on Fat Tuesday.
There are multiple celebrations taking place throughout the United States. Shreveport, Louisiana, named the #1 Place to Start a Business by FORTUNE magazine in 2015 and on-site filming location for more than 200 movies, television series, and short films, hosts several of them. Having southern charm, beautiful bayous, lovely lakes, and renowned Red River, this fascinating city is a hidden gem of class and elegance while providing entertainment and relaxation.  It is a refreshingly ideal place to celebrate one of the world?s most exciting and electrifying holidays.
