These 21 Vintage Photos Of Mardi Gras In Louisiana Will Mesmerize You

The first record of Mardi Gras being celebrated in Louisiana was in 1699. While we didn’t create the holiday, we have become known for it. With Mardi Gras season upon us, we thought we’d take a look at some vintage photographs of different parades in the early 1900s.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
