Celebrations: Make Your Own Mardi Gras Mask

See also

Mardi Gras in New Orleans is full of tradition and mystery. According to the Mardi Gras New Orleans web site, riders on the floats are required by law to wear masks. On Fat Tuesday, mask wearing is then legal for everyone else. Every year, Mardi Gras Indians make new amazingly elaborate masks and suits in a competition with the other tribes and krewes. This March 4, 2014 is Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras. You can celebrate, even if you're not in New Orleans. Honor the traditions and history with your own new traditions with your family or friends. See these suggested links for ideas on making your own mask.

Whatever you choose to make, enjoy Mardi Gras and the mark of Lent and the coming of Spring.
