Mardi Gras, French for Fat Tuesday, is a time for celebration in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana. This joyful holiday happens in the weeks leading up to Ash Wednesday, and it is traditionally a chance to let loose one's inhibitions before lent begins. The Mardi Gras celebrations involve large parades, throw beads, masquerade balls, and general celebratory shenanigans.
