Mardi Gras, French for Fat Tuesday, is a holiday in Louisiana. Fat Tuesday marks the day before the Lenten season when those who celebrate tend to indulge in decadent food before they begin a period of fasting and self-discipline in accordance with their religious beliefs. Fat Tuesday, in New Orleans, Louisiana, and even the U.S. at large, is often celebrated throughout the week and weekend before (and oftentimes longer!) with extravagant parties, parades and festivities.
If you can’t make it to NOLA for the ultimate party in 2023, no worries. Texas has you covered! Galveston Island has the third-largest Mardi Gras celebration in the United States and the biggest in Texas, and it will have you donning your green, gold and purple and hoping you pull the baby out of the king cake. So grab a mask and some beads, get ready to dip your toes in the sand and even bring the kids- the 112th Galveston Island Mardi Gras Celebration is not to be missed!
Let the good times roll!
