WhooHoooo! It's about time for Mardi Gras again, and here I am on Bourbon Street, all decked out in my beads...waiting. Let's get this party started!!! Out of curiosity, I did some research. Carnival season in New Orleans starts after Twelfth Night, on Epiphany--January 6--and culminates with Fat Tuesday--The Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which is the start of Lent. This year, 2012, Fat Tuesday falls on February 21. Fat Tuesday is the really big blast out party everyone thinks of when they think of Mardi Gras. (Thinks to herself...I'm so confused. Is it a party, or a religious holiday?...Oh, well, anyway...)
You can pick up your own set of beads at ELEMENTAL JEWELRY! The Bourbon Street 2--Xtreme Mardi Gras! Hunt runs from January 21 to February 21, 2012. The hunt was organized by Kastle Rock/Electric Hunts and all hunt gifts are L$1. So, come enjoy the hunt, gather up all the fantastic Mardi Gras paraphenalia, dress yourself in gawdy glory, and party on!!
