MARDI GRAS IN SHREVEPORT, LA -

Spanning both sides of the Red River, Shreveport and Bossier City offer a wide range of activities. From riverboat gambling to river walk amusements, or from musical hot spots to the famous gastronomical creation called the “Muffy.” Most anticipated in northwest Louisiana is the Mardi Gras season. Carnival is a farewell to flesh. A celebration of abundance before renouncing Earthly pleasures on Ash Wednesday. But not before the exclamation: laissez les bons temps rouler, or “let the good times roll!” Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday,” the biggest party day before the devout repentance of Lent. On the “Other Side of Louisiana,” the fun-loving people of Shreveport and Bossier City celebrate an alternative version of Mardi Gras.
