While the end of the Holiday season marks the end of the festivities in most of the country, it is only the beginning in Southwest Louisiana.  Mardi Gras is not until March 8th, but the fun, revelry and parties get under way this month.

The Lake Area's Mardi Gras traditions start with Twelfth Night on January 6th and end with the Krewe of Krewe's Parade on March 8th.  Get a listing of Southwest Louisiana's Mardi Gras events at SWLAMardiGras.com. You are sure to find something for everyone.
