What do yall know about Mardi Gras?

Currently many of my friends are visiting France and get to partake in many Carnaval celebrations, but as for me I am in Louisiana celebrating Mardi Gras. This got me thinking as to how we celebrate here differs from other parts of the world and country. And wondering what others who do not know much about Carnival and Mardi Gras think or know about it.

Yep! Hopefully I can visit francophone areas especially New Orleans around this time. My mom said I can one day but it is apparently too inappropriate for me

Yeah it gets really wild down in New Orleans right now, but other than that and the general downsides all cities tend to have it’s really fun.

I’ve been once & it’s very fun. The people on the floats throw beads & it gets hectic cause you, along with everyone else, are trying to get the most beads. And they sometimes throw stuff other than beads

I was a stilt-walker for 5 years and mardi gras is crazy.
