Every year in New Orleans, Louisiana the traditional Mardi Gras celebration draws thousands of tourists to the city from around the world. This festival includes wearing throw beads, decorative masks, festive costumes, dancing, street parties and a spectacular pageantry of floats, bands and other parade goers. The term “Mardi Gras” is French for Fat Tuesday. On this day, observers eat richer, fatty foods before the Lent season. The three colors selected for Mardi Gras are each symbolic in influence and purpose. Mardi Gras purple symbolizes justice. Mardi Gras green is symbolic of faith. Mardi Gras gold stands for power! Remember to wear the Mardi Gras colors if you are not in a costume.
