Mardi Gras celebration
in New Orleans

In 1873, the first float was constructed entirely in New Orleans instead of France. In 1875, the Govenor of Louisiana signs the “Mardi Gras Act” making it a legal holiday in Louisiana, which is still is.
Mardi Gras is very year on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which Ash Wednesday is 40 days for Easter (not including Sundays) . Carnival celebration starts on January 6, on the feast of the Epiphany. It picks up speed until the Midnight on Mardi Gras, the day before Ash Wednesday. This year it falls on February 24.
