Mardi Gras Drawings
Mardi Gras, French for "Fat Tuesday," is a day for celebration and festivities featuring parades, beads and delicious food. As the last day before the Catholic tradition of Lent, Mardi Gras is an opportunity for people to be festive before their 40-day sacrifice. The best-known Mardi Gras celebration takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana. These drawings are a jubilant reminder of the wonderful celebration that is Mardi Gras.
