Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras: Another Level of Partying

Mardi Gras parties have long been considered one of the most amazing carnival spectacles known to humanity. With revelers dressed in an unbelievable array of costumes and onlookers celebrating as fiercely as the revelers themselves, Mardi Gras parties are a spectacle to be beheld! Whether you're attending the festivities to see the parade floats, or you're in it for the full celebration experience, a costume is an absolute necessity of Mardi Gras participants. The more spectacular, the better!

From ethnic dances, to performers in traditional costumes dancing to ward off evil spirits, Mardi Gras has it all! Mardi Gras parties and celebrations have some of the most amazing costumes, dancers, and performances worldwide. Traditionally, each site participating in Mardi Gras presents their best revelers to give attendants a good show. In fact, the shows are so spectacular that the Rio de Janeiro festival has often been billed as "the greatest show on earth." Rio's annual spectacle is estimated to generate 250,000 jobs and over $640 million in revenue for travel accommodations such as hotels, bars, and restaurants. This means that Mardi Gras is not only a massive cultural event, but is also an effective economic stimulus.

With a massive parade, float riders tossing parade throws, traditional Mardi Gras Parade Krewes, exclusive Mardi Gras balls, and millions of ecstatic onlookers, Carnival is a celebration to remember! While Mardi Gras parties are traditionally a family event, a good deal of adults are working hard to make it an adult-only event. Some adults-only Mardi Gras parties amp up the event with alcohol and inappropriate behavior, but there are plenty that keep it family friendly and an event everyone can enjoy! The celebration is coming! Get a costume and head out to a Mardi Gras party near you!
