Today signifies the end of Carnival Season, and therefore the end to our Mardi Gras Mambo Giveaway. Did y’all have fun? But, before we go we have one last special throw. The winner of this giveaway will walk away with a bag of goodies!
Second, no Mardi Gras day would be complete without a costume! The Etsy store, Sweetie Pie Tutus, has offered to help us decorate your day with a Mardi Gras Mambo Tutu. This tutu is made with over 100 yards of soft gold, green and purple tulle. It is 8′ in length and adorned with coordinating mardi gras beads. All tutus are available in all sizes ranging from newborn to 6 years.
Last but not least, April at Just Typical Life (who is also an awesome photographer) has offered a 5×7 matted and signed Mardi Gras Indian Print to show the true spirit of our city. The Black Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans are a unique sub-culture of a highly diverse and complex group of the local population . The tradition of these masking Indians, dates back to the 1700’s. As a result of this lack of a solid path in the knowledge of Indian history, many theories abound, but this much is for certain, the Indians have preserved some of their culture and history in the guise of tradition, and that tradition at the time of Mardi Gras, is now an integral part of New Orleans. In the heart of New Orleans since the 1780’s and perhaps earlier, this ancient colorful and artistic culture has been practiced. A culture, that be it known, exhibits all of that tradition, with some of the positive heritage, and is quite a unique history.
