So with these ideas call up your friends during mardi gras for a fun filled food carnival! Gathering the Mardi Gras Parade Throws and Remember the Dates for Mardi Gras Carnival Season The changes in Mardi Gras and how it s celebrated and ever increasing popularity is because of lots of reasons not the least are variety of activities included. For one there is not another holiday that has its own colors parades special party balls and the date changes each year. Plus it is the special time of the year when those celebrating this holiday can wear very creative and colorful costumes to weeks of special events.
Though debutante balls and other high society events marking the holiday are still prominent they are no longer the only way to participate in the excitement. A trip to New Orleans during Carnival season is highly recommended if you wish to see everything first-hand but if that is too long a way from home try setting up a Carnival parade in your city or neighborhood. You need to organize some participants get plenty of festive decorations and start thinking of the most outrageous costumes not to mention get the permission and cooperation of local authorities. If that is hard to come by throwing a Carnival-themed party is another great way of sharing the thrill of Mardi Gras.
Meeting of the Courts Each year at the meeting of the courts there s a particular song that is played over and over (and over and over). The theme to Rex is a song called "If Ever I Cease To Love." After listening to the play by play by the on-air commentators and Mardi Gras Historians (like Mr. Mardi Gras Authur Hardy) " If Ever I Cease To Love" is considered to be THE pinnacle Mardi Gras song as well as the most traditional. Really guys? I ve never heard that song in my life. My curiosity was peaked and I went on a mission to find out everything I could about this ultimate Mardi Gras song. As it turns out "If Ever I Cease To Love" is steeped in tradition and remains probably the oldest Mardi Gras tunes out there.
