Mardi Gras - French Phrase meaning "Fat Tuesday" - the day before Ash Wednesday, first day of the Lenten season. Locals use the term interchangeably with "Carnival". Latin for "farewell to the flesh". The first street parades date back to 1872. Now, approximately 60 private organizations (called "Krewes") stage street parades over a two week period leading up to Fat Tuesday, the final day sees "Rex, King of Carnival" lead his entourage through a million maksed and frolicking subjects. Trinkets thrown by the riders add to the merriment.
