Mardi Gras – Celebrate Traditions!

Mardi Gras Traditions is about musical parades, food and floats. During the parades, people use purple, green and gold beads and colorful masquerades.
The term “Mardi Gras” (French word) means “Fat Tuesday” and refers to the Tuesday before Lent. It is called "Fat" or "Great" because it's associated with great food and parties. Lent always starts on a Wednesday.

On this day you can make a King Cake or any cake to celebrate the day before Lent.
