When you think of Mardi Gras, New Orleans probably comes to mind, and for good reason. New Orleans is certainly the king of Mardi Gras, attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists from all over the world hoping to experience a parade or two. But there’s another version of Mardi Gras that takes place in Cajun Country, and not too many people know of its existence. We’re talking about Cajun Mardi Gras, and trust us… It’s nothing like your traditional New Orleans Mardi Gras. Let’s take a closer look.
