Fat Tuesday was cancelled during World War 2, World War 1 and even the Civil War. All of those, completely understandable reasons. But, in 1979 Mardi Gras was cancelled in New Orleans for a very different reason, and people were not happy.
The Krewe de Bayou Voodoo Masquerade Mardi Gras Ball is this Friday night! This year's table - decorating contest also has a voodoo theme, and the winner will be the person with the most original and creepy looking table!
By now, you've had the chance to get to know "Queen Marie Laveau I" Jenny Krueger. Now, it's time for you to get to know "King Samedi I", Dwight Prudhomme, Vice President of Republic National Distributing Company.
Mardi Gras will take over Louisiana on Tuesday, February 9th. It will be a day filled with floats, cold beer, good food, lots of beads and pancakes. Wait, pancakes? Well, you'll be eating pancakes if you're celebrating Shrove Tuesday.
