  1. Mardi Gras is always a fun celebration, no matter where it takes place. I love the festivities and music that surrounds the event...not to mention, the tasty gumbo! Great pictures of all the cool costumes, it looked like a lot of fun. My name is Marc, and in aside from my love of Mardi Gras, I also work for Bescover -- where we love all things B&B! It's truly a privilege being a part of your online community.
